One Sock Done

Tonight I’m posting pretty late for me. I just couldn’t stop knitting to post until I finished my first sock. (And I would normally need to cast on before going to bed, but I don’t feel in any danger of not knitting this second sock – and the cast-on was probably the hardest part of the sock.) I kept waiting to see what my toe wanted to do until I got there. Then I grabbed my copy of Tongue River Sock Collection for inspiration, and inspired I was.

If you look at the side of the toe here, you can see that the sole pattern gets wider and wraps around the sides of the toe.  It’s joined in front with a three-needle bindoff.

Here is a good view of the sole, of which I am so inexplicably fond.

And this gives another view of the toe.  As well as a feel for the sock as a whole.  This view and the side both show off Annie Maloney’s stitch pattern very well.

This is one of the most fun things I’ve knit for ages.  I’ll really be encouraging Meg to get hold of this yarn ASAP!

    That sole literally made me gasp – I’m inordinately fond of it, too!

    GOSH – I’d want to sit all the time, with my feet up, so everyone (and I!) could see the sole of that sock. That’s extraordinarily beautiful.

    One very gorgeous sock.

    The sole is very unique – in the best sense of the word – and I’m glad you posted such good photos of it. I’m with Lori, it needs to be shown off!
