Because I can. Pt 8

BrianI was beginning to think that the gusset increases would never end, but I’m happy to report that they are, indeed, done! Not only that, but the long-awaited heel turn has been successfully navigated! The heel flap process has now begun!

Recently, I was invited to give a talk on the sock project at the Moonspinner’s Guild meeting, and while the focus of this guild is spinning and weaving, most of the members also knit. I had a great time sharing this project with them. The guild even came up with a suggested pattern for the leg of one of the socks, and since they meet on Tuesdays, I’ve decided to use their suggestion for the Tuesday sock.

Stitch patterns have also been assigned to the Wednesday, Thursday and Sunday socks, but there are a few more that still need to be decided. Do you have an idea for a stitch pattern for the leg of Monday, Tuesday, Friday or Saturday’s socks? It would be wonderful to hear (read) your suggestions. Keep in mind that each pair represents a specific day of the week. For inspiration, take a look at the previous post where each day is described. If your suggestion is selected, skacel collection, Inc. will send you some wonderful sock yarns!
