This was for last week, however, computer glitches and trips to the beach and warm weather and more good things have meant that I'm a bit behind!
I did manage to finish the first pair of socks....well almost...with afterthought heels, well this one, you have to graft the last stitches and it's not my favourite job. My friend, Dr Bones knows how to knit grafting, but I can't get it into my head....one day! This is surprising, as I've had quite a revelation with these toe up socks and suddenly feel quite confident about amending them entirely and making a whole new sock design. And, yes, I know, with purl stitches on a multi-coloured yarn you get all sorts of crazy colouring and don't really do the yarn justice. But that was deliberate and I quite like the effect.
The pattern I chose was to suit the yarn, and is a slip stitch pattern. These are good as you get a longer piece of colour and it's move around. This is a twisted slip stitch from a Harmony stitch guide. It's subtle, but started out really well.
