I am really pleased with my sock making progress today; I am about half way down the leg, I just need to repeat the stitch pattern then I am ready for the heel.
I have been super disciplined, by making sure that I completed two rows on each sock, in each shade, before continuing to the next set of rows. This technique is definitely working for me.
I am loving the colour change on the Sunset yarn and, as predicted, the off-white really makes those colours sing. Looking up close you can see that there is lovely detail in this sock pattern, each set of rows is slightly different, creating loads of texture and interest.
The pattern suggests a ch3 at the start of each row, which is not to be counted; therefore I need to slip stitch into the first stitch of each row instead of picking up the ch3. I am happy with the result but have been wondering what would have happened had I simply replaced each first stitch with a ch3? I am a bit of a stickler for the rules though, so I am trusting that there is a really good reason for this instruction!
On the inside I am simply carrying the yarn up rather than fastening off and darning. It's not particularly neat, but I did not fancy lots of yarn ends to darn in.
Aiming to make my way down to the heel during day 3!
