Blue Waffles

bluewaffles2

What an inspired title! Clearly, I'm going to need more caffeine today if I intend to make it to lunch. I finished up the first of my blue waffle socks and got started on the second one. I really like the way this yarn is knitting up. Once I get both socks done, I will do a comparison of this yarn (3 ply) versus the 2 ply yarn I spun from the same roving (just dyed a different color). Hopefully I'll be able to get some decent pictures of the stitches so we'll really be able to see how the different yarns look in the stitches.

As you can see, I decided to make the foot of these socks in plain stockinette stitch. I have several pairs of waffle socks (what can I say, it's an easy stitch pattern and works great for a no brainer sock) and I've found that they tend to make my feet look like waffles when I wear them in shoes. This is a slightly heavier weight yarn than my other sock yarns so I was really afraid of waffle feet on this one - might not be comfortable!

Love the sock. Waffle feet huh? That's a new one. Think I'll make my husband some just so I can say, "Hey, you, waffle feet!!!!" :) I am really interested in your 2-ply/2-ply test.

Lookin' good! I've always been a fan of the stockinette foot. Especially when it prevents waffle foot!

Those are really nice socks! I love the subtle shifts in color. And "waffle feet" conjures up some great images!

Hmmm, that's a really great suggestion about knitting the foot of the sock in regular stockinette so it doesn't create "waffle-itis". I'll have to remember that next time I do a patterned sock. Thanks for the tip!
