Six Sox Iris Garden Finished

I love these socks! I’m wearing them right now. They look kind of funky off the feet, but they fit well. Actually, the heels are a little too long, but that’s my fault. The more I knit, the looser my gauge got. Things I learned from knitting this sock:

  • How to break away from absolute perfectionism… The make 1 left took me about 5 minutes each time, so I just started doing make 1 rights instead. And told myself it’s okay because they were on the sides of the toe and nobody will ever know. Well, you know now…
  • How to do an afterthought heel. It turned out to be much less complicated than I ever imagined.
  • How to do a crochet bind off. Very nice and loose!
  • How to get a braided effect by having the floating yarn in front. Very clever!

The pattern was designed by Rae Blackledge of Rae’s Yarn Boutique. Thanks Rae!
