Sock in progress

I mentioned that I’ve been working on a new sock, in Footsie-HT:

It ran into a problem: I got as far as the ankle, and discovered it was just too tight for me to pull on over my heel.  Bugger!

So, I restarted, and am now down to the ankle again.  Sneak peek?  OK!

I’m really enjoying the textural nature of this stitch pattern, so I’m planning to use a heel-flap construction, and continue the pattern down onto it.

In other news, I’m heading off to Cottenham tomorrow morning to trade at the Cottenham Village College Summer School – the same venue as Textiles In Focus.  The car is already packed – well, kinda – and it should be a great day out.  A fantastic way to kick off the weekend!

  • I have that won’t-fit-over-the-heel problem a lot – really high insteps. It’s so disheartening to get half a sock knit and have to tear it out again…
    Have a great weekend!

    Never made socks – rather glad – it sounds a bit frustrating! Love the cableing on these (I suppose it is cableng?) but what a lot of work for a sock. You’d have to wear shorts with them to show them off! 🙂
