Moccasin Socks Finally Done!
They are finally done! And they look GORGEOUS on my fiance's foot. Before I get too deep into the post though, here're the details:
Yarn: Opal Handpaint (in a pretty dark grey color I got from a swap on knitswap)
Needles: KnitPicks Classic Circs US1
Pattern: Moccasin Socks from Knitter's Almanac
Notes: So, love the pattern.. except for one thing..
EZ Assures me these "bumps" will go away with blocking, but I don't think they will. I think if I make these again I won't make the decreases on the toes and heels quite so "Sharp" I've noticed EZ isn't big on graduated shaping, if she wants something to be circular she just does everything in one row and then blocks it to stretch, which I'm not sure I like. But whether I like it or not, these socks are great, and I also LOOOOVE the pointed heel. She's so right about how nice it is. Looks great.
As you can see its a little holey where the stitches got picked up but I've since fixed that with some creative stitch tightening. Also, please ignore my fiance's crazy feet.
So, anyone have tips on the bottom feet and getting rid of the points? More graduated shaping? Please let me know!
