Sorry, the excitement of yesterday’s bambi sighting superseded my WIP Wednesday! I did attached the photo of my pedicure sock’s beginnings, but I have been slamming on it and I have now progressed down to the few inches of the foot.
I have been getting up at 5am to knit this and I have decided two things: I like knitting at 5am in the middle of the morning songs of the birds AND I do NOT like this Paton pedicure sock pattern. I will do the mate to this with the pattern so they match, but when that one is done I am throwin the pattern out!
KathyB- in answer to your question about how I am ending this sock. The pattern says to work the foot till there is a total of 6 inches from picked up sts at heel (I am making the women’s 9-10 size) then work a K1P1 ribbing for two rounds and bind off in ribbing pattern. Then with a tapestry needle sew cast off edge together to form hole for big toe. (Don’t know if I am going to do that or not.) I intend to make several more pairs of flip flop socks but I am going to use my fave sock pattern and end like above! One part of the problem with that Paton pattern is that it is written for DPN and I do 2 circulars (or Magic loop) and it was taxing my brain at 5am to convert the directions causing me to make mistakes and get frustrated! LOL I have converted patterns before, but not at 5am!
