The Old Bay socks are finished! I called them that in an earlier post because they contain Chitin which is made from shrimp and crab shells. I made these for one of my coworkers, Angie, because she has very narrow feet. When I started them using my regular pattern (Wendy's Toe-Up Socks, thanks Wendy!) I quickly realized that this yarn is so much finer gauge that I didn't cast on enough stitches. Rather than ripping them out I asked if any of my friends have narrow feet and would like a pair of hand-knit socks. Angie's feet were just the right size so I continued on with them, matching her length and ankle size.
This yarn knits up very soft and squishy but it can be a little splitty when using US#0 Knit Picks circulars with their stiletto points. I hope they hold up well for Angie. Don't they look great with jeans?
I used Wendy's Feather and Fan Pattern for the cuffs and finished them off with an inch of 2x2 ribbing. Now it's back to the Lacy Cable Scoop sweater. I'm ready to put the body and the sleeves together and start the yoke.
