In an earlier post I confessed that I lost a bet (eight years ago) to a friend who’s a talented potter. She’s a bit of a hoarder with her gorgeous pottery and I’ve only got one of her pieces in the 25 years we’ve known each other. Well back to the socks, when I nag her for a pot she always brings up the socks I owe here. To get back the moral high ground I finally (!) got around to making Jen her socks.
The pattern is Cookie A’s Cubist Socks which is free just by jumping through a very easy hoop or two. Very much worth it! The yarn is Cascade Yarns Heritage Paints in colorway 9883. I enjoyed both sock pattern and yarn, though I did change the heel flap to shortrow heels and toes. Of course! The shortrow change does interfere with the last bit of pointy pattern of the heel chart, but I don’t think that’s a biggy. I hate heel flaps, so losing the bit of pattern is a small loss. I think no one would even notice anyway.
So they’ll be gifted and I’ll hopefully get a pot in return. I mean moral high ground is good, but I’m after an amphora.
