Twistin my socks away...



I finished my Pink Lemon Twisty Socks! I just can't believe how much fun these were to knit. All the details: Strawberries and Bananas yarn from Sunshine Yarns, size 1 US needles, Melanie's Twist stitch pattern with a ribbed cuff. The Melanie's Twist stitch pattern isn't too hard to memorize, but for some reason it did seem to take me most of the first sock - maybe I wasn't paying enough attention. Once I had it in my head though, it stuck there. It seems to have a higher number of rows/rounds per inch than straight stockinette. Most of my socks take about 66 rounds of the foot (including gusset) at this gauge before I start decreasing for the toe but these took 78 rounds. Not a big deal, but something to keep in mind if you use this stitch pattern. Thanks for all the comments about your favorite sock patterns. I agree with all of the suggestions and have knit all of those socks! Hmm...what socks will I do next?

Those are great! I've eyed that yarn before; I might have to actually give in and buy some now....
