My own socks

With Monte up north I decided to work on my own socks.  They were finished in about three days.

Yarn used: Simply Soft, a blue color

Pattern: A simple toe up sock generator found here.

The heel was done using a style found at TessKnits here.  And the short row style found here.

The socks turned out fairly ok though a bit smaller then I wanted.  Either my gauge is smaller then I thought, or it is just because I am on the high end of the pattern size.  Foot size is 9.  The heel had to be taken out the first time, I started too soon!  My first pair of toe up socks, I just could not find anything out there that would give me a good rule of thumb for starting the heel, which by the way is quite roomy.  I used a three strand cable, just not a normal braid style.  The strands have more space between them.

Now the pics!

The pattern is: Levi’s Baby Blanket designed by Lindsay found at her Type-K blog here, and her Ravelry here.

Now I just need to pick the yarn and pick up some needles.
