Sockapaloooza Socks Done!
I finished my second Sockapaloooza sock yesterday, so I'm done with them! I'll be getting on the bags this weekend. I feel pretty good getting them done already. I'm usually a big procrastinator so finishing these up almost 4 weeks early is a good thing for me. I'm really happy with the way they look, in fact I'll have to knit myself a pair soon.
Some of you have asked about the pattern and I plan to write it up and offer it for sale, but it won't just be for this one sock design. It will actually have two complete sock patterns, plus directions for a third, which will actually be a variation of the second design. I also plan to give directions for dying with Easter Egg Dyes, just in case you don't know how to do that. My Sockapaloooza Pal will get a copy of the pattern with her socks and bag. I've started knitting the second pair of socks for this pattern so its well on its way. Once I get the first sock done, I'll write up the pattern, then double check it with the second sock. I like to knit from the pattern I've written, rather than write the pattern after knitting because I think I can catch errors better. I also always knit from the chart AFTER its been entered into the computer, rather than just a pencil drawing. Again, it helps me to catch errors so I don't pass them on in the pattern. I hope everyone has a great weekend! I'll be knitting socks and making bags - unless I decide to wander the streets and measure strange people's feet (I think there could be a song there!)
