Once again, I've finished my last single sock. It is for my Sockapalooza Sockpal, and I think that she will like it. If this sock is not outrageous, I'm not sure what is.
Pattern: Loksins! by Cassie of Too Much Wool
Yarn: Socks that Rock Lightweight in Sherbet
Needles: Susan Bates DPNs size 2 for the first 2 cuff repeats, Addi Turbos size 1 for the remainder
Time to Knit: June 8 to June 25
Modifications: I did a picot edge and knitted the first two repeats on size 2s. I also grafted the toe.
Because I didn't have any 2.5 mm needles, I had to resort to using my Addis. I tried doing 2 circulars, but that was really annoying me, and I switched to Magic Loop. It was OK, but I still think I prefer my standard DPNs. Jody's hint about using a 24" needle helped a little bit. I switched from my 32" to my 24" and things sped up.
It was fun knitting this sock to someone else's specifications. I got lucky in that my pal's foot is about the same size as mine, but her color preferences were a little different. Yay for branching out!
So once again I'm retiring from the Single Sock Liberation Movement. For real. Like, Michael Jordan retiring from basketball real. (Does this mean I have to start crocheting single socks, kind of suck at that, and go back to knitting single socks again? Hmm....)
Eleven has been my favorite number for a very long time, and it does seem appropriate that I knit eleven singles. It's been a lot of fun! But now it REALLY is time to stop, which means a contest will be forthcoming. See you then!
