Finally! Started in August 2010, sock no 1 finished in September 2010, sock no 2… February 2013. Yes, it is official, I suffer from Second Sock Syndrome! This condition affects a significant number of knitters and the Joey is one of them. Now that this is recognised, I can aim to do better next time… yes, I can.
The socks :: I love them! The socks are ever.so.pretty and comfy and soft.
Yarn :: The yarn is amazing. I love the softness and colour.
Pattern :: It's the "Evening Stockings for a Young Lady" from Knitting Vintage Socks. It is simply wonderful (like all patterns from the book, really!). And with a name like that, I just had to knit it!
Changes :: Well… quite embarrassingly, the socks don't reach my knees as they should. So I would definitely add a few more rows to the leg bit to ensure they were just perfect. If I were to ever knit this pattern again. Hum…
