I like to think of myself as a storyteller. Mostly I tell stories about knitting.

The first I wish Daryl was here. sock is complete.
I wish Daryl was here. sock.
Pattern: Night of the Living Sock by Cambria Washington
Yarn: Dizzylettuce Claire de Lune – Lichen

The stripee socks were a little too small for Rebecca (I should have followed my knitterly instincts), so I started ripping toes to add a wee bit of length. one done. one to go.

It feels amazing….wool so soft it doesn’t feel real. Nothing inspires me to rework the toes of socks like fresh yarn! Well played, Rebecca!

Ps. Check out what others have finished at Tami’s Amis and Wisdom begins in Wonder and Natural Suburbia

    That’s what I like about top down socks – easy to tear back and adjust the size. Interesting pattern.

    The yarn you knit the green sock with looks very nice. I love socks! The grey yarn looks truly squishable.

    They all look fab, but I love those stripee socks.

    And something about hearing you say you rip the toes out makes me get all giggly and stupid.

    =)
