FO: Duet Socks

Posted on June 10, 2008 by knittingpatterns4you | 1 Comment

Here they are! I actually finished them this past Saturday but didn't manage to get my act together in time to post. I really like how they came out and they're really comfy!

I already know I won't be knitting with such thick yarn again for socks, but if I did I would remind myself to short row less on the heels -- there turned out a bit poofy, but definitely not unwearable. I still can't quite believe I finished a sock in 2 days, much less a pair in a week! This is almost definitely a record for me. Makes sense when you think about how many fewer stitches it takes to make something that's only 52 sts around instead of 60, and has way fewer rows per inch!

If you look closely at the toe of the left sock you can see the design I left in even though it doesn't show enough . . . just a sneak peek of what my next sock design will involve! Shhh, don't tell.

Project specs:
Pattern: 52 sts around with contrast toes & rib
Yarn: Duet Sock yarn in color Puddle Drop
Needles: US size 2
Started: May 31, 2008
Finished: June 7, 2008

This did turn out gorgeous!!! I have had a lot of requests for another batch of this colorway. It was pretty as a skein and seeing your sock knitted up…it just might create a frenzy!!! Beautiful job!!!
