Loopy Academy, Knitting Edition, Socks Finished

I've finished my socks for Loopy Academy!  These are the Shotgun Shuts His Cake Hole socks, knit in Malabrigo Sock in Indiecita.  The sock assignment required that we knit them from the direction we're least comfortable with.  Fortunately for me, I'm just as comfortable with toe up as I am with top down, but since I haven't knit big socks toe up lately (just the little footie socks), I decided to do these toe up.  Also, my twisted stitch project is socks too and those are knit top down. 

These socks are mirror images of each other, mostly a twisted rib, but then it gets more interesting on the leg.  I used the Fish Lips Kiss heel.  The first sock had some weird pooling, but the second sock kind of striped regularly.  Both were knitted from the same skein, from the same direction of the skein end.  I cannot explain this at all.

This means I've finished two out of the three projects for Knitting Loopy Academy and one of the three projects for Sewing Loopy Academy!

Good morning, Melanie! Great socks! My pre-coffee brain may have come up with an explanation for the pooling differences. When one winds a hank of yarn, the outer wraps get a little longer as the hank gets thicker. The difference from first wrap to last wrap could, I'm guessing, be as much as a couple of inches, depending on the yarn. And we know that just a stitch or two can change a pooling situation a lot. Love your blog! I read it just after "my" two foster kitten blogs (ittybittykittycommittee.com and love-and-hisses.com). TMI? LOL
