Project: November socks
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock in Blue Box Fever
Pattern: Zigzagular Socks

The November socks are finished! (Check out all the socks completed for Liesl’s challenge here.) I got them off the needles while on my way home from San Diego (technically it was December already, but at least I started them in November). These socks had a false start early in November when they were coming out way way too big, even though I was using my usual needles and stitch count. So I started over, went down a size, and they are snug and fabulous. I may stick with this smaller size from now on because I’m liking the fit so much on these. 

The yarn is so psychedelic Socks that Rock that Andy gifted me for my birthday, so it felt appropriate that my November socks would be birthday socks, too. He said he picked the color because it was bright and something I didn’t already have. That kid knows my tastes pretty well. Plus, I think the name of the socks refers to the Tardis (at least that’s the only blue box I know about), which only makes me like the socks even more.

This is my first time working the zigzagular socks. I’m not usually a giant fan of twisted stitches (they throw off my knitting mojo). Something is just wrong with them, twisted. But I had fun making these socks and I love how they turned out. It is a great pattern for busy variegated yarn. Plus, it’s simple enough to work up quickly, but the cabled twisted stitches keeps your brain happy.

On to December!
