Yarn: Ancient Threads Sockittome
I will send my photos into The Loopy Ewe as I've now completed the challenge. These socks were a challenge too! The cable was tiny, the needles were tiny (2.25 mm) and the act of making socks challenging. I have room to grow too. On my insteps tiny ladders have formed - I need to figure out a way to correct this in the future. My first sock is also way tighter than my second. My tension on my yarn was too tight due to lack of experience. I also spent most of the knitting of the first sock fighting with bamboo needles. These needles and this yarn were not a good combination - grabby, grabby, grabby! Ugh. I was so glad when I finally broke down and purchased steel needles. They made for a much more enjoyable knitting experience.
Since I finished the sock, I have been wearing them for a time here and there. They are super comfy (except, I wish my first one was not so tight). Poor Mister keeps hearing, "Hey, did you see my socks?!"
