A first for me

A colorwork sock.  I’ve never done one before.  But SKA July challenge is colorwork and I thought I could make a pretty one by pairing a dark yarn with some handspun.  The handspun is a very early spinning attempt of mine, but I don’t think it looks bad at all in this case.  The pattern as written is far too short for my taste.  I experimented with a different way of elongating the leg portion but ended up frogging that and going with a second repeat of the star pattern.  Doesn’t this rather look like a quilt block?

  1. Looking good–keep trying it on. My first sock like that ended up too tight and I had to do it again being more careful with my floats. Sigh.
