Sock Challenge 11/12 - July
It has been a race to get these socks finished on time. It has also been quite the challenge to knit a bit of Fair Isle in the round. I was so thrilled with the color combination and it knitted up beautifully.
Then I tried them on....the horror! I could nearly get them over my heel! I had a feeling that this would happen, so I tried to keep my tension the same all the time, not too loose, not too tight. Anyone has tips on that matter? I tried knitting the second sock a lot looser, but then it was way too big and the Fair Isle part ended 2.5 cm below the ending of the Fair Isle of the first sock, so I frogged the second sock and started over.
So once I've put them on, I won't take them off too soon! In the pictures above, the socks aren't blocked yet. I hope the Fair Isle part will become a bit more even after blocking.
