I finished my Ukrainian Socks last night. Here they are, unblocked.
I used an afterthought heel, so the heel is basically another toe. It fits well. It should, because it took three tries to get it right.
Feet are the best sock blockers!
And I have happy feet. I wore these to work today, in snow boots.
Worsted weight socks, adapted from Ukrainian Socks in Folk Socks by Nancy Bush. Knit from stash yarn, KnitPicks Wool of the Andes, and US size 5 dpns.
I really like how these turned out. But there were a million ends to weave in! So my next socks will have fewer colors. I’m considering the Finnish Socks from the same book, adapted again for worsted weight yarn. Did I just say “next socks?” Me, the non-sock knitter? Hey, it’s cold out there!
What’s wrong with this bird bath?
