I did it! I finally finished my latest pair of knee high socks! I’m not sure I can adequately describe just how much I love these socks. The variegations of rotting, bruised flesh accented by the clotting blood is I think perfectly shown off in the entrelac stitch pattern, which I learned specifically to pull these off! 😀 I wanted to highlight the short colourway.
Now for some details;
I used Lorna’s Laces Sheperd Sock in Zombie BBQ. Purchased from Yay for Yarn. I ran out most of the way through when I decided late that I needed knee high socks. Thanks to Kiri for organising me some emergency back up yarn to cover my stupidity! This is the reason for the colour variation at the top. Hand dyed yarn will never look exactly the same, even when from the same batch. It’s part of its allure!
The pattern is Entrelac Socks by Eunny Jang, though I skipped the tassels, and on the advice of some comments on Ravelry when I got to the top increased to 8 stitches as I believe they were designed for narrower calves than mine. 😉
Now for the weather to cool down enough for me to wear them!!!
