We had an awesome day at the beach this weekend....I didn't take pics.....instead read, napped, swam, watched DH build sand castles. It was such a nice reprieve! Of course it did slow my knitting down a little bit, but it was totally worth it!
I love how things transform with blocking....socks don't always get a blocking, but these softened up so much and smoothed out! I'm quite pleased!
Pattern: Flame Wave socks from Favorite socks (one of my favorite books)
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock DK (now you know why these went so fast!) in potluck purple
Size: I made the larger size with 56 stitches
Needles: US 3 and US 2.5 dpn
Mods: I did a round toe...they just fit my foot better and added two rows of single crochet around the top which solved the rolling issue (plus a little blocking) Some mentioned picking up stitches and knitting ribbing....I did consider this, but thought crocheting would be easier and would keep the scalloped edge in tact, plus if the crocheting didn't work it would be easy to take out and pick up the stitches! Overall I'm pleased! Now it just needs to cool off enough to wear them!
