Grey Stripes Complete
I finished the grey stripes socks Monday, 12.19.05, in the morning, so wore them to work that very day!!! They are really comfortable - very cushiony - I think because of the bamboo stitch.
The Stats: GREY STRIPES SOCKS
64 stitches on size 1 US (2.5mm) addi turbos
Magic Loop method: 2 socks; 1 circ
Reynolds Swizzle (fingering weight)
cuff: 20 rounds: k2, p2
leg: 40 rounds: bamboo stitch
heel: 32 rows: eye of partridge stitch
gusset/instep: 58 rounds (bamboo stitch for instep; stockinette for sole)
Here's a picture of the socks right after the completion of the gusset decreases.
I've started another pair of socks. These will be out of Lorna's Laces in the Jungle Stripe colorway. I've finished 13 rounds of the cuff (K2,P2).
