A new start, with my third pair of socks
I’m thinking this blog might be the more sensible way to show off my crafts, we’ll see how things go… I’m not overly keen on the look of it but it will have to do, maybe one day I’ll actually get round to learning about CSS and be able to get it how I want.
Anyway, what I’m here for: socks. My third pair, in a Regia 4-ply I bought in Oberstdorf (wheee):
I’m not as thrilled with them as my previous pairs, even apart from the mistake in one row that I was too lazy to take back. I thought that as it was a rib, if a fairly wide and fancy one, I wouldn’t need different ribbing at the top, but I now see it really would’ve looked better. Also, although, I like very short socks, I think in this pattern they also would’ve looked better longer, or just with the additional length of some 1×1 ribbing. I also think I need to be doing a deeper heel. But, live and learn, they feel fine so they’ll still get worn, if only under trousers where they won’t show. And, inspired by these, I think I might run some ribbon round the top of them, in which case they’d look pretty enough to wear with a skirt.
I’m anxiously awaiting the arrival of my next lot of yarn, I got the email to say it had been sent about four days ago but there’s still no sign of it! I hate Royal Mail.
