On ravelry I named these socks mistake. I thought for sure this yarn and this pattern wouldn’t turn into something I liked, but I knit on anyway. Usually I wouldn’t recommend continuing to knit when your gut is telling you to stop but in this case it worked out for me. These socks were made with Lorna’s Laces Solemate in the colorway Tickled Pink. The pattern is Charade by Sandra Park. These were knit two at once on two circulars.
I love pink and I’m pleasantly surprised with how these socks striped.
Above is my attempt at a close up of the stitch pattern.
Nothing fancy just my beloved standard short row heel. This yarn isn’t a fancy mcn or anything but I like it. It’s one of those good yarns that feels like it will hold up to wear and tear. This is my first time using Lorna’s Laces. I have another skein of Solemate in my stash and I’m glad I took a chance on this yarn.
I’m wearing these socks today to see if the Solemate yarn lives up to its claims of regulating feet temperature. Its 71 degrees in my house and over 100 hundred degrees outside. My feet tend to be cold so we will see if I can wear my socks during the Texas summer in the house.
So I broke my own rule and had four projects going at a time after vowing to never go over three. Right now Im back down to two and I’m itching to cast on a new sock. I’m on the second sock of another project and I have one shawl that I’ve abandoned. Controlling the startitis is going well.
