Boring socks

Well the knitting is rather boring. My husband has declared his socks should be plain stockinette. He means the WHOLE sock not just the foot. He even wanted me to leave out the ribbing at the top! Now this is a LOVELY yarn and I have managed to get the first sock up to the expansion triangle. Yes these will use one of the architectures from the book New Pathways for Sock Knitters.

I will be using the Ridgeline Master Pattern for this pair. At least that part should be interesting on the first sock. I am also using a single short circular for the first time when knitting a sock. So far I am loving it. We will see how I feel about it once I get the expansion triangle and heel done.

For a quick review my first pair of socks posted used the Upstream architecture. If you look at some of the photos of the top of the sock you can see the triangle formed by that expansion triangle.

This is really embarrassing, but a looong time ago, you asked to join the New Pathways Knitalong and I forgot to do it . . . :( I am so sorry. If you are still interested, please let me know. I just need your email address to send you a Blogger invite.
Thanks & sorry again,
