Basketweave socks

Posted on Saturday, 29th September, 2007. Filed under: knitting |

I’ve been very very bad at updating, I know. I’ll try to catch up with food posts at some point, but this is the last pair of socks I made, I finished them about a month ago I think:Basketweave socks

Basketweave sock, better look

Apologies for the poor quality of the first photo, and the flabby thigh in the second.

Rowan 4-ply Soft in Wink, 2.25mm needles, 64 stitches, down to 60 after gusset decreases. They’re too big round my ankle, but because I like my socks short at least I don’t have a problem with them falling down. I love that a simple combination of knits and purls can produce such a complex-looking pattern, everyone who sees them is so impressed because they think I’ve done something amazingly difficult!

I probably wouldn’t have chosen this colour, but it was going cheap. It’s a great yarn, I really enjoyed working with it, especially the good twist, not at all splitty, unlike a lot of the yarns I’ve been using lately, but I doubt I’d buy it at full price when I can get beautiful, unique hand-dyed yarns for the same amount or even less.
