First off, a big thanks to my secret pal!
She (?) sent me some sock yarn AND a nerd rope!! yessss…. And they match each other. Perhaps i shall design a nerd-ropey sock pattern for the yarn…. What would that be like? Anyone have any ideas…
I started another sock project shortly before receiving this yarn. It is the Chuck’s Sockspattern in Louet Gems yarn.
Wow. It’s really photogenic. I figured the pattern will be too big for my foot (I have munchkin feet) and the yarn i am using is pretty fine, so I thought using smaller needles would size the pattern down for me. Even though I was focussing on keeping the floats loose, when I started with the brown, the sock got tight. So i sized up the needles, and ditched the DPN’s for two circulars and that helped a lot. Unfortunately, I am coming pretty close to not being able to get this one on my foot. i should have ripped it back, but I couldn’t bear to do it, so I will just have to yank this one on. Hopefully the second sock will be better.
