Harvest Sock Swap

Originally uploaded by Paula knits
These are the Cafe Curtains socks from the Harvest Sock swap. In that swap, we knit one sock and sent the materials for the rest to our partner. I had to frog my partner's very nicely knit sock to redo it to fit my weird leg. I feel kind of bad about having to do that. Someday I may be able to do a sock that fits properly and explain to someone else how to do it. That day has not arrived yet.

My latest project is Garnstudio/Drops Design's Sideways Garter Stitch socks. It isn't toe up. It isn't cuff down. You knit the full length of the sock and sew from the toe, up the sole of the foot and up the back of the leg. There's some short row shaping for the heel and the leg. Mostly it's lots and lots of garter stitch.

Hey Paula! Have you joined HSKS4 yet?

Hey Melissa, I don't think I'm going to play this time. I enjoy the kit part of the swap: dyeing yarn, making a bag, finding stuff my partner likes. I don't much enjoy the trivia and the quidditch, though. I hate letting my house down when I don't get it right.

sorry the sock didn't work for you but that's how things happen sometimes.At least you were able to make it work for you. I do hope you liked the yarn I used though.

Jen, I just feel bad that I had to undo your work. The yarn was great. I liked the colors and enjoyed working with it.
