Finished Robert’s First Sock

Posted by mtmom on June 10, 2009

I’ve been knitting doggedly and have gotten all the way to the top of the first of Robert Watt‘s socks.

RWatt 17 1/4"Here, you can see the back-of-leg shaping, the pins marking increments of 2o rounds, and the “garter” at the top.

I’ll put these on hold for now, and begin the second sock.

The cuffs, which will turn down and cover the garter, I plan to add last.

I’m currently swatching some likely candidates:  “ploughed field”, “uneven/broken rib”, “arrowhead”, and maybe cables.cuffs 1,2

cuffs 3,4Meanwhile, I ordered my Level III materials today!

    Those socks should be oh so cozy and warm. I’m sure he appreciates the socks (though he may not comprehend the work involved).
