I finished knitting these beauties, vacuumed my rug and took some glamour shots. The first thing I noticed in the photos is the right and left sock do not match. What the everloving heck?!?! I had a mini heart attack and quickly grabbed the socks to diagnose the issue. They are a test/sample knit for Hunter Hammersen and I wasn’t at all keen on having botched them up. Hmm. In person, they look perfect. I looked at the photos again.
and then back at the socks.
and then back to the photos.
How odd. There’s an optical illusion so the pattern looks slightly different based on the angle. Turns out the position I contorted myself into for this sock picture is one of those angles.
See, different angle and everything’s fine. Crisis averted.
Yarn: Space Cadet Oriana 8-ply
Needles: 2.25mm Addi Sock Rockets for the legs
Signature Needle Arts DPN’s for the feet
Pattern: Test knit for Hunter Hammersen (rumor is the pattern will be out in Mayish, and if you join Hunter’s mailing list, the odds are better than average that a magical coupon fairy will visit your email box when the pattern is available)
