Once Upon A Sock – August 2019

More sock progress this month!  I’ve finished one sock that will be a present.  I don’t want to share pics of the sock or yarn until both are finished and gifted, but I WILL say that this pair was made with the Vanilla Latte Socks pattern by Virginia Rose-Jeanes.  I’ve made this pattern twice before and love its simplicity with enough interest to make the progress feel faster.

With a few days with high heat and humidity, I took myself to the movies and got some movie knitting done. These vanilla rainbow socks are making me super happy. The yarn is Regia Pairfect.  The only thing stumping me is how to do the heel.  I’m thinking of grabbing some left over stash yarn for heels and toes and making it a heel flap (which is very likely what will happen).  Afterthought heels aren’t really my jam, so it will likely be a flap. However, if I do afterthought, then I don’t have to work as much before continuing with the heel… hmmm…. if anyone feels strongly either way, leave a comment.  Apparently, I’m changeable!

And finally, the dreaded Kroy socks are still in progress, although sock #2 is creeping along round by round.  I swear, Kroy, never again!

At least the colours are pretty.

About Once Upon a Sock: On the first Thursday of the month, a number of sock-knitting bloggers share their progress with the theme “Once Upon a Sock,” an awesome initiative co-ordinated by Paula @ Spin A Yarn! It’s well worth checking out the other posts because it’s always interesting to see what other people are looking at; it’s like sock yarn eye candy!

  1. I love that rainbow yarn! I would say the type of heel you use is the one that fits you the best. I’ve made one pair of socks with an afterthought heel and I hardly wear them because the fit isn’t the best for me. There are quite a few heels that I still need to try, but seriously the best I’ve found for me includes a gusset heel works the best. I know that probably was no help, but go with what fits your particular heel best 🙂

    1. I have two pairs with afterthought, made during my not-as-confident stages. One is too big and the other a little too small. I think this will be my third attempt for my afterthought, maybe it’ll be the goldilocks JUUUUUUST right!
