I finished my stripey socks today!

Pattern: Toe-up sock, wedge toe with a Crystal heel (which is basically a modified afterthought heel).
Yarn: Red Heart Heart and Sole (blue) and Knit Picks Stroll Multi, colorway Paisley (the pink/purple)
Needles: US 1/2.25 mm KP circular

I knit these socks over 56 stitches, which is what I usually use, but I think I ought to switch to 60. They fit but they’re a little difficult to get on over the heel.

These are socks and they are lovely but I don’t have a tremendous amount to say about them. The heel is very similar to an afterthought heel but I really like a flap-and-gusset heel the best. So for my next socks, which will be TARDIS socks, I’ll use a flap and gusset. As is my wont.

I’ve actually knitted up another scarf-like thing that was for a test knit. It was super fast so I’ll have pictures of that soon.

PS: New socks.
