SKA March 2015 Mystery Sock


Not one but two pairs of socks for the March 2015 Sock Knitters Anonymous challenge. The first pair was the month's mystery by Adrienne Fong, and the second the math inspired Squircle by General Hogbuffer. The mystery pattern was enjoyable and I like the finished socks, complete with the deliberate holes in the heel and toe (there was an option to make the toes more durable, but I decided to go all out with the lace). The Squircle was more straight-forward but with an unusual construction. It was fun to knit, too. I might reknit the pattern, with 60 stitches instead of 64, in the future.

  1. Oh. My. God.
    I love them. Both. But I'm in love with the first one.
    Oh. My. God.P
    They are awesome. They are unbelievable.

  2. I like both socks, for different reasons. The construction of the second pair looks like it is quite a bit mind-blowing, I knit a lot but I can't even begin to guess how they were made. Nice bit of reverse stockinette down the heel.

    But the other pair is so pretty! Is that blue beads that I think I see in the centre of the medallions? I love the lacework down the toe part, I have not seen this treatment before. These are the kinds of socks that you almost wish you could wear inside transparent shoes - just to show them off to perfection.
