I was so excited to finally be a part of the Sockapaloooza sock swap hosted by Alison that I picked out which sock yarn I was going to use right away and started knitting....that was like three months ago. I was going great guns at first, but then I lost interest....not sure why. Anyway I got back on track and here's what I came up with. They aren't perfect but I'm really happy with the way they turned out.
Sock pattern: Pomatomus from Knitty (thanks Cookie A.)
Yarn: um, lost the ball band but it is definitely 75% wool 25% nylon (with matching reinforcement thread for toe and heel) bought in a tiny little yarn shop in Davos, Switzerland
Needles: bamboo 2.7mm(?)
While in progress this sock travelled on Tokyo commuter trains quite a bit, made a few appearances at the Tokyo SNB, and also flew to Okinawa with us on holiday!! Now they will find a new home.....(not in Japan). I hope you like your new socks, sockpal!!
Trying to imitate the original pattern photo...I wish someone could have been there to see me lying on the floor in my pajamas with my feet in the air trying to take photos - it was a real workout for my abs!!
And here they are lying on my knees!
