Fiesta Feet Sock(s)
Pattern: Fiesta Feet by Lucy Neatby
Needles: 2 24" US 1 Addi Turbos
Yarn: Some purple Wildfoot and scraps of variegated yarn from 4 different balls
Special Technique: Knitting a sock which requires thought for every stitch
Started: October-ish, 2005
Completed: March 16, 2006
Recipient: Meg... if I ever find the other one
I was going to wait until I found the second sock in the pair, but as it's been nearly a month since they've been finished, I have to take a picture of something. It was a fun knit, though definitely an intense experience.
My favorite part was either the heel...
Or the top of the foot.
The variegated scraps combined up quite well. You can hardly tell they all came from different yarns.
I've decided that I won't be knitting any more sideway garter stitch cuffs. Sorry, Lucy, as I know it's sort of your trademark and all that, but it just doesn't seem particularly worth all of the fuss. The flower thing on the foot is pretty nifty, however. As is the bumpy honeycomb heel.
