First I must answer a question. Elli asked, â€œWhat yarn I am using?â€ To answer her question, I am using Koigu KPM. The color is number 2361.
I finished one sock and so far I am not all that happy with it. The picture in the magazine is a bit deceiving. The first thing I noticed is the picture does not show the sides, which normally is not a big deal, except this time they did their heals a funky way. On the heal flap they put a garter stitch edging which does not match the rest of the sock. The next thing I noticed about the sock was the toes. In the picture the toes do a spiral effect which is really neat, but unless you have toes that line up flat it will not have the same effect. My toes come to a point, and the spiral effect is completely lost on them. The rest of the sock is great, and if it was not for the fact that I have a list of things to knit the length of a skein of yarn, I would have taken them out. They work and they are for me, so they will have to do.
