I tried something new in the socks.
July challenge on a knitting page was "Stash Dive". So yes, I can do that. Why not! Find some yarn I have had for a long time & use it. Yes, I can definitely do that.
I pulled out this Patons Stretch Sock yarn that I have had for probably about 10 years. I didn't look to figure out how long exactly. But long enough. So now I have a new pair of Circle socks! Really pleased with them actually. I thought they were going to be too tight but I adjusted the heel to give it a little more room & it worked perfectly.
I didn't do the heel on the pattern but went with an afterthought heel like I usually do. I did start the one on the pattern but didn't like it. I also did these from the cuff down which I haven't tried for a long time. I don't like that either. Turns out that the circles could have been done toe up too as the pattern for those wouldn't make any difference.
