Sometimes you need to take a picture of the bottom of your feet when there’s no one around to help.
Well, it finally happened. I finished the Aquaphobias. And I lurve them.
Pattern: Aquaphobia Socks by Crystal Flanagan
Yarn: Ivy Brambles Sockscene Fingering Weight, color The Basin (Franconia)
Started: February 9, 2012
Finished: April 1, 2012
Mods: I shortened the leg from 20 pattern repeats to 17. I continued the slip-stitch pattern on the sole rather than working it in stockinette because (1) it’s prettier and (2) I wanted to avoid the sole wearing out right away while the rest of the sock still had a few years left in it. And I worked a Dutch heel because I had just read about them and they sounded cool.
They look cool, too, even if my sloppy-stitch side is more pronounced than on my usual heel.
At 4 pairs and 13 weeks into the year, I’m doing alright on my pair/3 weeks average. I just hope the next pair doesn’t give me attitude. I think I’ll make some yoga socks next. Those look easy. Very short, no heels, no toes. No attitude.
Not that I ever really mind the attitude once the socks are done.
