Knitting Content

Posted by Picasa

These are the Francie Sock. I found the pattern here, and I really enjoyed knitting them. I used Valley Yarn's Huntington from WEBS. They are different -- there's a textured foot, and the gusset decreases were done from the bottom of the foot rather than from the instep. I knit them exactly as the pattern was written. I only did 1.5 repeats for the leg, and they fit perfectly. I wear an 8.5 wide shoe and have very thick ankles and calves. I haven't worn them yet as it hasn't been wool sock weather just yet, but I am looking forward to wearing them a lot.

I've been wanting to try these and just haven't had the nerve. You've inspired me as soon as I finish my sweaters for my DGC. I made a mistake, knitting 4 of the SAME sweater is boring. Next year, they're getting different things!

When your blog activity shows up on "Friends Blogs" on Ravelry, all I'm getting is a comments feed and no posts. That's happening on others as well, and I'm wondering if it's happening on mine.
