[Me-Made-May13] day 13

Knitting for grown-ups, Me-Made-Months / Monday, May 13th, 2013

Socks today! still rather cold for a month of May and apparently the forecast isn’t any better for the next 10 days… So handknits again, a little meh this time. These are Stealth Argyles Socks by Eunny Jang, from the book Sock Knitting Masterclass. I really like the colour combination when I bought the book, and decided to knit these socks with the exact same colours. This is really unfrequent for me, I tend to change everything in a pattern, starting from the colour and the yarn. So the yarn here is Malabrigo sock, very nice to knit with. The pattern uses shadow knitting, which means that a pattern appears when you change your point of view on the socks. Of course it was a pain to knit, but the result is fun. However, the gauge is way too lose for socks (my gauge was spot on so it’s a problem with the pattern) and as they’re nearly knee high, they keep bunching on my heels. I hardly ever wear them….
