August Socks

I just can't stop!

Look ma, I posted my socks!

Pattern: Small Capitals from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Trekking XXL 146
Needles:
Lantern Moon rosewood size US2 Sox Stix, set of 5

This pattern was different because it is a toe-up pattern with a heel flap and gusset. All the other toe-up patterns I've done have had short row heels, so this was a new experience for me. Although I did miss getting to do the kitchener stitch, it was a fun pattern to knit. And these ones are for me!

I finished them on August 26, with five days to spare.

Remember the yarn market? Screaming Wendy? Guilt? Birthday Lisa? I did benefit from it:

Same skein, just flipped over. I love it. It looks just like a rainforest to me. I can't wait to knit it up. I need a good jungle pattern for it.
