ankle socks.


i am using the pom pom peds pattern (nice alliteration) from the purl bee. it is a super simple and fast knit up.

not a super big fan of the colourway but i figure i need to inject some pink into my life. the part i dislike the most is the purple bits!

i finally taught myself how to do the long tail cast on with these socks. the finished sock is actually with the knit on method. i attempted to do the long tail method with the second sock. which was fine until after i had turned the heel, i realized i did the long tail cast on completely WRONG and i had to frog the whole thing. and now, just after i took this picture, i realized i knit the first sock with 2.5mm needles, and the second sock is over halfway done on 2.25mm needles. gotta frog again.

my favourite part about knitting socks is turning the heel. luckily with this pattern i only get 8 rounds in until i start knitting up the heel…. unlikely to get bored.
