the first sock
That's the first Glynis sock done. Hard to say what the sock is like - the unwashed yarn is making the knitted fabric stiff and inflexible, which does the sock no favours. Right now the heel feels chunky, the leg of feels inelastic and the patterned stitches are very rigid. My plan? Knit the second sock so that I can wash and block them together. And then we'll see. Based on my swatching experience, it should make a world of difference.
