I finished these socks right before the trip and was hoping that once we got home I could find a bale of hay to photograph them on. I'm glad the socks were in my knitting bag, because the resort had a couple of bales of hay stacked next to the pool, all staged with a kerosene lantern and coil of rope.
What more could I ask for? Teenage Daughter was even willing to run down and take the pictures for me.
I love the way the yarn (Stroll Handpaints from Knitpicks, in the Hayride colorway) makes these pretty narrow stripes. And my non-existent sock pattern is pretty foolproof at this point.
Is anyone interested in doing a knitalong with me and learning how to do these? They're toe up, knit on double pointed needles (this would be a great project for learning DPNs, since you aren't joining a bunch of stitches and worrying about twisting them), and we can do it with fingering or worsted weight yarn. Anyone want to play with me?
