Look! A brand new pair of vintage socks!
It occurred to me this evening that it is the eve of a Grand Event, and I was nearing the end of my ubiquitous sock. If I was going to still have a sock to take a picture of with Stephanie, I was going to have to hustle my bustle and finish this one in order to start a new one (the new one also requiring some hand ball-winding). So I did.
The pattern calls for a toe made of even decreases until eight stitches remain, draw the yarn through and pull tight. It made a very triangular toe, but if Nancy Bush suggests it, it's worth a try. Honestly, I can't tell when wearing it that it's any different than any other toe I've ever made.
And, as usual, I made the leg just a little shorter than called for, and I had a ton of yarn left over. I always have a ton of yarn left over. I could almost make a third sock from it. What's up with that? I certainly don't have small feet.
The pattern is a little lacy, and as I walk, I can feel the air move through the holes. It's kind of cool.
Now, what to wear, what to wear?
