A second pair of socks have come off the sticks. This pair is the Serpentine sock pattern from the book Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy D. Johnson. I knit them two at a time on one long circular needle. A little confusing at first but once I figured out how to keep the balls of yarn separate it was easy.
This is my first lace sock pattern which was very easy to follow. I had my share of ripping and repeating, but eventually understood the increases, yarn overs and decreased stitches.
I wish I would have made them about an inch longer on the ankle, but I was afraid I might run out of yarn.
I also finished the Cascade quilt but will be writing a special blog post all about it, soon. It sure does make a pretty backdrop for the sock photos.
I used a Russian bind off technique and I don't think I am very good at it yet. The bind off caused a little bit of ruffling at the top of the socks, but I am sure I will get better as I make more socks.
Now I just need some cool fall temperatures so I can wear them.
