Wildfoote Socks

I knit these on a pair of 24″ #1 Addi turbo needles. The yarn is Brown Sheep Wildfoote Handpainted in the Brown Sugar colorway. The socks were knitted toe-up using Queen Kahuna’s “no-wrap, no gap” heelsfrom the Crazy Toes And Heels book. I used an “invisible” figure-8 cast on and a super-stretchy grafted cast-off (the dreaded kitchener!). The instep and ankle are worked in “blueberry waffle” stitch (2 rows 2×2 rib, 2 rows stockinette, repeat).

I’m calling them Waffles With Brown Sugar.

The socks fit great! Super comfortable, stay up, etc. As always, click on the pic to see the larger version. You will also be treated to a close-up of a tiny slice of my messy home office.

  • Thought of the Minute
    • The peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it. If the opinion is right, they are deprived of the opportunity of exchanging error for truth: if wrong, they lose, what is almost as great a benefit, the clearer perception and livelier impression of truth, produced by its collision with error.

      (John Stuart Mill)
