Knitting Olympics Day 5 AKA Red Socky Love



I made it past the heel turn and the gusset and I now have only 26 rounds until I start toe shaping! I really hope to finish these socks today! That would put me at 5 days for a pair of socks which is definitely a personal best.

In Non Olympic Sock Knitting News, I have been thinking about what I want to knit for my Sockapaloooza Secret Sock Pal. I know I'm not going to start until after the Olympics (we don't even mail the socks until May 2), but I've just been letting some ideas bounce around in my head. According to her knitblog, she likes the Harry Potter Books and she also has a cat (yeah, that really narrows it down doesn't it) so I'm kind of letting those ideas just sit in my brain and we'll see what they give me. One thing I had thought about is making a pair of socks inspired by this scarf, and in another colorway. Its the Fair Isle Jazz scarf from Scarf Style, and I fell in love with it the first time I saw it. I would put a Fair Isle band at the top of the sock and then go to cables for the rest of the sock. I think it would translate pretty well into socks. What do you guys think?

I have absolutely no clue how you make socks so beautiful. I'm working on my first pair right now, and you could climb their laddering all the way up to my roof. Great job on the beautiful socks!

You never cease to amaze me Melanie! And I think your idea of the fair isle/cable socks would be interesting and beautiful!

I love your socks! I just finished my first pair of socks for the knitting olympics (in five days!) However, they did not require your complicated and beautiful stitch work
