Sock with No Name

March 1, 2008

I was supposed to knit Dublin Bay for a KAL recently but I just didn’t like that huge stretch of stockinette stitch running up the front so I started tweaking the design a little. Next thing I know I have come up with something totally different. My sock is knitted toe up with a short row heel (though I think it might be easier cuff down). I added an arrowhead lace panel to the center and then decided that in needed the trellis lace on the left hand side to match the direction of the arrowhead lace better so I reversed it. I have knitted and ripped and knitted and ripped and knitted some more until I am finally happy with my socks.

I Proudly present to you
The Sock That Should Have Been Dublin Bay.

Now for the socks on a foot instead of a wire sock blocker.

My model has smaller feet than I do so they are a little long for her feet.

The color is a bit wonky. My camera doesn’t really like reds. The color is truest in the first photo.

Now I just need a name for my first sock design.

Pattern – my own (to be available for free download as soon as I finish writing it in intelligible format)
Yarn – Knit Picks Memories Redwood Forest colorway
Needles – Size 1 circs.
