April Socks - Mexicali Peppers
Pattern: Gentleman's Fancy Stockings by Nancy Bush in Knitting Vintage Socks
Needles: Size 1 US Knit Picks circs
Modifications: Cast on fewer stitches
I almost didn't finish these socks. I lost the faith. When I got to the heel of the second sock I was convinced I didn't have enough yarn to finish so I put them aside and knit a different sock. After finishing that sock and realizing it didn't fit, I returned to this sock and figured I'd go as far as I could and then come up with a solution. I ended up with more than enough yarn without having to change anything.
I love these socks. The yarn was so bright and cheerful. It got me through a very dreary, rainy April. The pattern is fun and easy and makes for a well fitting sock.
I'll post more details on my blog tomorrow.
