Robert’s First Foot

Posted by mtmom on May 26, 2009

I’ve been working feverishly on these kilt hose.  RWatt sock foot

I ripped that heel all the way once, resumed, then ripped part way twice, then, when I’d completly turned the heel and found the foot too long (sigh), I ripped it all the way back again, plus 2″ or more up the foot.  I had told myself that, if I had to rip again, I’d add in some reinforcing nylon next time, so I did.  And now, here we are, with one foot and about 1/2″ of ankle.  I recounted my stitches and plotted out some possible ribbing patterns.  I’ll be going with k7, p2, k2, p2 . . . with some modification at the ankle to narrow that portion even more.

(See the designer’s brain in action. . . .)  RWatt rib plans

By my calculations, I need to knit on these at least 1 1/2 hours per day, on average, to finish in time.  Must keep the intention flowing!

    Hang in there you can do this! I look forward to seeing the finished kilt hose. I do agree that taking on a bunch of other kilt hose would be too much, it would definately reduce my joy of knitting them.
