Well this pair of socks started came into the world a while ago.
The flew to Melbourne and back without a single stitch being added.
They then sat around looking at the blanket being knitted, feeling lost and abandoned.
And then when I do pick them up again, I’m already kind of bored. I’m knitting them half heartedly thinking “I wish I had a pattern, or something more interesting than sockinette”.
Aha! I’m about to do the gusset, surely I can do something different with that!
So I hunted down Ravelry and found a centre V increase. I modified it to the number of stitches I had and I was on my way.
The heel turned with ease, the ribbing was complete when I felt restless.
What else can I do or learn for these socks.
I love the look but have never learnt.
So onto YouTube I go and find my knitting guru, knitting by Judy.
And voila! I have a pair of socks with some interest.
The yarn is Moda Vera noir (as I can’t help but buy it in every pretty colour), and I’ve used two different colours and switched them over at different points.
Two at a time baby!

Thanks for the closeup of the picot edging. Very pretty. I’ve never tried it either but I like the look of it better than I thought I would.
I was surprised at how easy it was.
Time consuming definitely, but pretty easy.
But the video explains it better.
Love the edging – thanks for sharing.
