Beware the Ides of March
It comes in the form of toe-up socks!
Having missed out on the 2006 round, I put a reminder on my calendar so I could be one of the first to sign up for the 2007 Rockin'Sock Club and am
As you've probably seen on other blogs by now, this is the first sock colorway called "Monsoon" and the first pattern is called "Inside Out". It's a toe up pattern with cabled legs that creates a reversible sock. So far this pattern has kicked my ass. This little bit of toe you see above represents about 8+ hours of work! I've a) never done a toe up sock before and b) never done a short row toe up sock before so I've now frogged the toe 3 times but I think I've got it.
I'm new to this sock club scene but I've never seen a pattern discussed on a blog so much! Mostly over trying to make the leg fit--the original pattern was written for a US size 10 (I'm a 6.5), it involves 2-4 changes in needle sizes and there's a 5/1/5 cable that knits up to an rather inflexible pattern so some people are using a size 2 or 3 and some have abandoned the cable altogether.
But I shall not give up! I shall persevere! I will have reversible socks! Hear me roar!
