vanillamagick: (Random Shoes)
Finally, another pair of socks for me!


These are the Salto Socks I started back on my holiday in November. I finally finished them and Wow, that took a long time! They are a little longer than I normally knit. The yarn is Blue Mountain Fiber Arts Sock Candy in colourway Dusty Blue.

To be honest with you, I made a few mistakes with these socks. The increases on the back of the first sock were done wrong and left tiny holes. (I was in the middle of the Caribbean Sea! I didn’t want to waste my precious Internet minutes looking up how to do an increase I thought I knew how to do.) And the second sock is actually a bit taller than the first since I did one extra cable twist on the leg. Oops! Thankfully the foot (which is what you see when wearing socks with pants, as I am wont to do) is perfect for both socks. I even followed the advice of the pattern and reversed the cables for the second sock.


And can you believe that I haven’t cast on another pair of socks yet? I’ve started another project, which I will share tomorrow.
