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

Finished the first Muppet sock (Vanessa antiopa Socks by Hunter Hammersen) including switching out the purled toe for a ribbed toe to match the cuff. I didn’t love the idea of a purled toe with this colorway – I do love the ribbed toe.

Then, I started the second sock. Wasn’t happy with the pooling (deja vu) – too much green all on one side. Frogged it. Started over.
Muppet Sock & book
These socks were going to be for my mom and I was worried they would be too small. They were a wee bit tight and it turns out that she’s not a huge fan of the colorway even though she did like the pattern. Luckily for me, Turtle LOVES the colors and they’ll fit her. Winning!

  3. But is a ribbed toe comfortable? I’m a bit princess-and-pea-like when it comes to toe comfort :) That’s a very bright colourway … perfect with jeans!

      I have some others with ribbed toes and I’ve never noticed a difference. Interesting point.

      Everything goes with jeans! I like where your head’s at.

      I generally run about a sock a week if I don’t get distracted. The second sock is taking A LOT longer as I cannot seem to get the pooling to behave! may stick the yarn in the freezer.
