The Toe Up Bayerische are done and I’m more than happy that this project is over.
On Ravelry: Toe Up Bayerische
Pattern: Bayerische Socks by Eunny Chang
Yarn: 601 m/657 yards (3 skeins) of ONline Linie 2 Supersocke Silk (55% new wool/20% silk/25% polyamide) in colorway #0002 (ice blue)
Needles: 2.5 mm
Mods: Converted to toe-up and knee-high
I made a foldable ribbing in which you can thread an elastic through but I’m in two minds of whether I should actually sew it down or if I prefer the longer ribbing. And about the yarn… It’s wonderfully soft and smooth and really makes the cables pop but I did notice considerable pilling even before wearing the socks. All that stitch mangling is apparently pretty hard on the yarn too, not just the knitter.
As if that project wasn’t twisted enough, I’ve started another! Another theme in February 2008 Sockdown is new heel construction and these are certainly very unique.
