Finished: Sock 2--March 3, 2009
I started knitting them as part of a KAL.....but that KAL has been done for a while LOL..
See here, eleventy-billion gusset stitches. You see the pattern has you pick up one stitch for every 2 rows on the heel flap. Well it was too holey for me and I didn't like it. Thus, I picked up every one...sigh..no wonder by the end my hands ached!!
Also note the eye of partridge heel. I think I knit sock 2's heel with too small of a needle...I still prefer good old slipped stitch heels though.
Although knit almost 6 mos apart, they look pretty good. I love the colors together, not so much the pooling, but I can live with it :) I got the pattern when I was in the very first Rockin' Sock Club, it was the very first shipment. I was fairly new to sock knitting and was too scared to try it.
As you can see, not scared anymore!
