FO Friday- E socks

These having been waiting a while to be blogged, the socks from my marathon finally get their turn on FO Friday.

Pattern: Escalator socks by Sara Amoroso
Yarn: Knitpicks stroll in Gypsy
Needles: 2.25 Kollage dpns

I did this pretty much as on the pattern apart from changing the lengths of each section to suit myself. Changed the decreases on the toes a little as I needed them longer, this has made them a bit pointy but they are ok on.

I love this pattern, it comes out looking fantastic and is easy to work. Although I did manage to finish them in the weekend it was maybe a bit ambitious- a plain pair might have been a better choice for that.

I also love the yarn (lots of love to day), it is gorgeously smooth and so very red- yum! I will be finding ways and reasons to get my hands on this stuff again if it wears well.

Obviously the subtitle for these is Marathon socks, I am going to measure up for my F socks now, that's right- I said measure! 8-O

  3. I like this pattern. I hadn't seen it before, I may have to put it in my "to do" list as socks are becoming one of my favourite projects again.
