Of Slip Stitch Sox

About 7 months ago, the first version of these were my second pair of toe-up, short-row heel socks.

The other pair is gray and black, which gives it a classier appearance. These are just fun, made out of some mysterious russian (I believe) sock yarn and some left-over Regia hand-dye effect.

Looking at these socks closely, I wonder if a gusset heel wouldn’t work better here … ah, who am I trying to kid? I know it would, but I haven’t yet found a method that does not drive me nuts. Does anybody have a link to a great toe-up gusset heel? I’d love to see it!

And we are not speaking about the clearly visible proof that counting to two sometimes is too much for me …

That being said, I wrote up the pattern, it just needs a few minor adjustments, and then I hope to find some willing <del>guinea pigs</del> test knitters who help me find any flaws. Once that’s done, I’ll make it available for download.

Love all things vintage, especially knitting from the victorian era through to the swinging twenties.
