Wildfoote Socks – Waffles With Brown Sugar

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.
