Paulies Socks from Knitcircus

I picked this pattern for my next pair of summer socks because it was pretty much a no brainer.  Knit 2, purl 2 with a little twist stitch every eight rows.  But I read the directions anyway.  It felt like the writer was trying to make something simple sound difficult.  When I got to the heel I had to read it over a few times before I could “see” what she was talking about.  I went with an Eye of Partridge heel instead.  It’s a good look on variegated yarn.  Next came a shaped arch sole which I have done a few times.  Here again, the directions were weird.  At first, I thought it was me.  I am dyslexic, you know.  I got out one of my Charlene Schurch books (I wish I had remembered to take them to MDSWF) and read what she had to say.  I felt much better.  Thanks Charlene.  I didn’t bother with the shaped arch after all that.  I was tired of thinking.

I made mittens to go with the hat.  I like these so much that I may not sell them.
