Who'd have thought it? I've knit... socks! I'm working on non-sock projects, really I am, but I haven't felt like lugging them around in this heat. The Clapotis is a thick, stifling blanket, and even Geodesic and the lace shawl I'm knitting are too much. So it's socks.
Vampire socks (March '10 Mystery Sock for the SKA on rav, not really called vampire socks). Top of the foot:
Side of the foot (How much you wanna bet yoga was invented by people trying to take pictures of their handknits???)
Both of them together:
And from the back (speaking of contortions...)
I love how these came out. The twisted stitches made my hands hurt, but aren't they pretty?
The boring details:
Yarn: Louet Gems Pearl Fingering in a freakin' bright blood red
Pattern: Belle Vittini
Needles: US #0
Comments: I only did one repeat of the second chart. I love the stitch definition of this yarn, but for some reason can't get gauge with it. My row gauge was off so much, I ended up with an 8" shaft even though I left out 20+ rows of shaft pattern! Still, I love how they look. Lots and lots of twisted stitches, though.
