Socktober Slippin' Strippin' Socks
These are the Slippin' Strippin', highly irritatin', never knittin' socks with lace weight again socks. The pattern is by Tina Lorin and this was part of Sock Madness 2. I like the pattern and I like the look, but the fabric is so thin in places. I used Jojoland Harmony and Jaggerspun Zephyr Wool-Silk.
I started these back in April as we were leaving for our Pacific Northwest Cruise. I actually started them on the way to San Francisco, with the grand plan of having them done by the time we got back. Nope.
Another thing I didn't like - all the ends I had to weave in. Every 10 rows, one yarn changed. Ugh.
Hey - they are done. That's something to be happy about. I probably won't wear these much. I just don't see them holding up well.
