Pattern: Pomatomus, by Cookie A.
Needles: US 0 (2.00mm) Crystal Palace Bamboo
Yarn: Yarn Pirate Merino/Tencel in Quicksilver
Mods: None really. I knit the toe a little shorter and not so pointy, but otherwise I followed the pattern to the letter.
Here you can see my only issue, and I know what I would do differently. My YO’s were so huge on the left side of the instep. If I knit these again, I’d bypass the YO on that row and then on the next row just pick up the bar (as if to do a M1) and then I’d have my YO.
I figured out how to use the super-tulip function on my camera! (OK, I know that’s really a super macro function. I just like to be silly sometimes.) You know what else is silly? I chose to wear these to work today! Really, it’s only 88o outside today.
This shot is a pretty good representation of the colors in the sock.
Look at how my toenail is starting to separate from my toe on the bottom. (Look at the crappy airbrushing I did to hide my toe hair.)
I know I said that I was going to work on Reid’s sleeves next, but I feel like I’d be forcing myself. I’ll probably start Bellatrix tonight. We’ll see if my chosen yarn will work with the drop stitch pattern.
