Thick Woods(wo)man's Socks
Pattern by Elizabeth Zimmermann
Yarn: Knit Picks Shamrock in Dougherty (about 3 balls, I think)
Modifications: Went down two needle sizes to change the pattern from a men's sock to a woman's. Also changed the length of the cuff and foot obviously. Omitted garter stitch edging on heel flap in favor of slip stich edging.
I finally managed to finish these socks. I had one whole one plus the cuff of the second done for months. It's been staring at me in an accusatory way, demanding that I finish it just in time for... spring. The nice thing about knitting socks on size 6 is that I knocked off the whole heel and foot in one evening. These are lovely, thick socks for lounging around on a Saturday or wearing in delightful combination with my purple Crocs. I was trying to use up the extra from knitting socks for the guys at Christmas, but I still have a significant amount left.
And tonight? Swatching for my next pair of socks with the new Kalamazoo yarn.
