Could Have Three By Now

January 22, 2013 by Crystal

Well I caved into the temptation and cast on for a new pair of socks. I couldn’t help it, when faced with the endless amount of embroidery needed to finish the Golden West socks my mind just melted and all I could do was drool and stare into space.

I first cast on a pair of Aquaphobia in a very gorgeous Hello Yarn Sock in “Dia de los Muertos” but was unhappy with the colour distribution so ripped them out.

Next I started a pair of Herringbone Rib Socks in the same yarn. I wasn’t as excited about them as I thought I would be but kept going as sometimes there is a magical charm that overcomes you when you actually put a sock on your foot. I knit until I got a bit past the gusset and then tried them on.

Well, I tried to try them on but THEY WOULDN’T FIT. I was knitting a 72 stitch around sock, and they wouldn’t get over my heel. I prompty cried, frogged, then deleted that pattern from my queue forever.

So then I started a pair of Aquaphobia. Again. Yeah, I know. But I went down a needle size (from 2.75 to 2.5) and am happier with the result. I even took a picture!

How cool is that colourway? Hopefully these will fit… HAH. Kidding. I know they will, I wrote the pattern!
