March Sock

Yep, it’s my March sock, even though it’s still February. When I consider this sock, I realize in all honesty, this is the sock that will take the most time this year, and I am quite happy I’ll be getting it done in the beginning of the year.

This one is Mr. Ink’s socks for his birthday. I am doing a toe up sock, with alternating heel and toe yarn. I weighed my ball of yarn in order to get as much length out of them as possible. I used Jeny’s surprisingly stretchy bind off for the first time on these, and then made my place for my afterthought heel.


I’ve been working on this bit by bit, just a little each day. But, it’s my intention to get that heel done fast in order to do a fitting with Mr. Ink, and then if they fit nicely, I can just whip out the second sock as fast as I can and be done.

I have decided that this time around I am going to attempt an afterthought heel that adds a small short row gusset to the socks. We’ll have to see how that works out.
