Finished Object Friday
Pattern: Gentleman's Sock for Evening Wear
Yarn: Sock Luck from Studio June Yarn
Needles: size 1 (2.25 mm)
Modifications: Shortened ribbing of cuff, shortened stockinette section below cuff, skipped one repeat on leg to squeak through with one skein.
Comments: I want to like these socks but I just don't. I love the yarn but I think it's too thin for this pattern and the resulting fabric is too lightweight. This yarn would suit size 0 (2mm) much better I think. And the pattern? Meh. It's mostly a vanilla sock and the lace pattern down the front of the sock is not very attractive. Big wavy purl ridges that aren't really my thing. The socks are in time out until I decide what to do. Mostly I think I'm going to rip them out and salvage the yarn for a different pattern. I'm just working up the nerve to start ripping.
It's a blustery, stormy, rainy Friday. I'm linking up with the gang at Tami's Amis. Take a minute, grab a hot cup of coffee and go have a look at the parade of finished objects there!
