First 2013 Rockin’ Sock Club pattern done! I started backwards; this is the last pattern for that year. I know the first pattern was my least favorite so I’ll probably end at the beginning. Everything in between is up for grabs!
I liked a lot of things about this pattern. The twisted cable and ribbing works well for me and looks much neater than the standard rib & cable. It might be “cheating” because I know this is a tension problem but the results are so much nicer that I’ll stick with it. I’m also quite happy with the colors and over all look.
Unfortunately I doubt I’ll wear these much. Once the sock is on it’s comfortable but there is a non-stretchy point that makes it hard to get on & off over the heel/ankle. The foot fits perfectly. The heel is a bit too long and the ankle/leg is too small. The heel flap is purposefully longer to accommodate the twisted stitches but I didn’t need that extra length. I did need more room at the ankle and leg and that wasn’t accommodated enough for me. I know I have fat calves so maybe that was it. I’ll watch that in the rest of the patterns!
