Decisions

I am about midway through the foot of my first Anastasia sock:

First Anastasia sock

Isn't it pretty? Much better than the cable twist, though I don't mind that either. I definitely have enough yarn to knit a second Anastasia sock, and possibly a second cable twist as well. Why not use it up, right?

The pattern is really easy, self-correcting and intuitive. I had a teeny bit of trouble with the pdf layout of the pattern that was easily fixed by reading through it twice. But other than that this is smooth sailing!

I had a dream the Brooklyn Bridge was in my hometown and my dad and I were looking at it. The Manistee River is not anywhere near like the East River (which is a tidal strait anyway). Just saying.

The opposition party always wins midterm elections, did you know that? With one very notable exception.

Happy Friday!

Please let me know what was confusing about the pattern; maybe I can fix it! I'm glad you're liking the socks--they look great!

Honestly, I'm not sure it would bother anyone else! I missed the key and the "knit odd rounds" part. Also I wasn't sure how many stitches I was going to need to have once I finished the toe.

It's probably just me! :)

Looking good! :)

I used Heather's almost sportweight and US 3's on mine..have to frog the legs...still too baggy for me. Any ideas? US 2's..1's??

I think I would decrease the number of stitches between the swirls, maybe 9 or so...you could do double-decreases on a few of the rounds after the ankle so the pattern stays consistent?

Do you think that would work? You could keep the stitch count consistent and switch needles, but I don't like to swatch socks, so I'd do the decreasing method and just keep decreasing till they aren't baggy anymore!

I love what you have so far. I have been debating for weeks about whether or not to try that pattern. I think your pics just pushed me to the must do side.

Thanks for sharing.
