|Can't see the lacework, can you?|
- Pattern: Dead Simple Lace Socks, by Wendy D. Johnson (in Socks from the Toe Up)
- Yarn: Lang Yarns Jawoll Superwash Solids, colorway 8304 (black)
- Needles: US2
- Modifications: Used Turkish cast on - 16 stitches total - then increased *every* round (to make toe more rounded) until up to 32 stitches , then started alternating a knit round with an increase round, up to 64 stitches. Used Jeny’s Surprisingly Stretchy bind off.
|Now can you see the lacework?|
Side note: I hate-hate-HATE it when toe-up sock patterns end with "bind off loosely". Using a standard bind off, I have never been able to bind off loose enough for socks. For a while, I used EZ's sewn bind off, which worked well, but now I am a devoted fan of Jeny's Surprisingly Stretchy bind off. Well done, Jeny, well done.
Now. NOW. I get to knit some colorful socks.
