I was shopping one day with my Mom and this sock yarn just jumped out at me,
so I had to buy it! I have not knit a pair of socks in a while.
I saw a free pattern there that was for the Spiral pattern from Paton’s, but they had you knit it as tube socks. I did not like that, so I made a few changes to it.
I like to knit my socks from the toe up. But I do not like double pointed needles, so I have sworn them off!!
I knit my socks the magic loop method, this time I tried knitting them two at a time.
I decided to knit the slip stitch heel. But I didn’t have the right amount of stitches!! So I tried figuring out if there was a formula to use with my number of stitches. I had about 60 sts give or take a few! I thought I almost had it, but not quite!
So I googled it!! And guess what, there was a formula!! I was excited!
Someone out there had figured it out, it is from Knot Another Hat It is really cool and I love the heel!
I finished them last night !!
Well almost I just had to bind off one sock today!
If you would like to see more about the socks you can look at my Ravelry account.
