They are finally done! Took me long enough but they are done.
I have another pair to make but with it I will probably take the designer’s advice and duplicate stitch the ribbon instead. And no afterthought heel for me. No sir. If I were seriously considering being a Notorious Sock Knitter, I will apply Cat Bordhi’s Riverbed Architecture or something.
Let’s see how it goes.
There. One pair of Eclipse Socks as ordered. Eibee I hope you’ll like these!
The short row heel looks a bit shallow but I tried it on and they are just fine.
Project: Bite me!
Pattern: Eclipse Socks by Julie P. Miller
Yarn: Knit Picks Essential
Colourways: Black and Burgundy
Notes: Attempted stranding, which I think is a massive failure but it works somehow. Didn’t like afterthought heel. At all. So I did short rows on the second sock. Not crazy about the yarn either. But it’s a sturdy blend which is perfect for teenagers who have no patience to handwash their socks.
