I have one sock down and a good start on the next in this black pair for my Dad. I now know why I haven't knit black socks before. It's very hard to see what you're doing with small black stitches during the shortest days of the year.
I like this pattern but all the k2, p2 is starting to become tiresome. Fortunately, as with all fancy sock pattern, this will become half as bad when I turn the heel and work the sole stitches in stocking stitch. I like to think of the foot part of the sock as the home stretch. It's just a bunch of straight stuff until you hit the toe and then before you know it, your sock is done.
And my pride and joy, the Tangled Yoke. I really like it. Because it is knit on circular needles as one big piece, you can try it on as you go. This allows for a better fit, I think. And you can see that you're making progress.
I do recommend buying a little extra yarn for this one. This is how much I had left.
Who said knitting wasn't dangerous?
