When I expressed concern about a recent too-short sock, several readers offered advice for remedying the situation. My decision not to act on any of those suggestions is not a reflection of my sincere appreciation for the tips; it’s more a result of my desire to just be finished with the socks.
FInished so I could cast on my next two pairs of socks! My plan this time is to avoid the too-short leg by — wait for it — knitting a longer leg. Radical, I know.
This is a full 8 inches/20cm, a good inch or so longer than my usual legs. The downside for me is that it takes longer to get to the heel, which is my favorite part of sock knitting, but the upside is that the sock wearer will have a sock that actually fits properly. It’s not all about me, is it?!
Mom has started her next garter stitch scarf with a bright, cheery yarn.
This is Hedgehog Fibres sock yarn in HeyDey colorway. Although she doesn’t look it in this photo, Mom is delighted with the bright splashes of color.
Knitters, what’s on your needles this week?
