Yesterday, I treated my self to a pair of display (manikin like) legs.
They are a bit too long in the foot right now, but not too much. And the ribbing will keep the sock snug—and also allow stretch.. It will both keep the sock up, and the heel seated until they do fit perfectly--(and then will allow ease and let her stretch them length-wise as her feet continue to grow!)
Meanwhile—I am on my toes.
Today, at work, I will get the Lion Brand Sock Ease Socks started—Color way Cotton Candy (a bright bubble gum/pepto bismal pink).
These will be toe up socks, because I don't have a full skein of this yarn (it was gifted to me, and I never look a gift horse in the mouth) nor do I mind when gifted sock yarn is not quite a full skein.
I am sure I have enough (or close to enough) to do a sock of my standard length, (about 9 inches from base of heel to top of sock)--but its easier to work toe up, and not be caught short.
I haven't decided on a stitch pattern yet--(is there one that looks like fluffy cotton candy?)
I might go with a simple lace..Pink socks sort of demand lace (or beads, or a ruffle) don't they?
The stripe pattern is a dominating one; so a bit of patterning will not be too much.
Besides, I done a few pairs (well 2 in a row) of pretty much pattern free knitting—time for a change!
I'll go toe to toe with anyone who disagrees!
