Pattern: Sunday Swing Socks (with modifications)
Yarn: Knit Picks Memories, Fly Fishing
It was fun and the socks knit up quickly, maybe because this yarn is a little thicker than the other stuff I've been knitting with recently and maybe because there are so many knit stitches and the stitch pattern is so easy to follow, just regularly spaced k2togs and yarn overs.
Until the very last minute, I planned to knit the pattern as written. Then I decided that I didn't want to mess with a cuff down pair or a heel flap. I wanted to use the stitch pattern -- and knitting it toe up made my stitches slant the opposite direction, but they're slanting and that was the whole point of the thing.
I think I've only got two skeins of Knit Picks Sock Memories left in my stash and I'm going to miss it once it's used up. This was some of the first sock yarn I ever ordered and I still love the colors of it.
