Komet Socks

February 9, 2011

I got this yarn from yarn4socks, but I just didn’t like the pattern that came with it.  The cuff had beads in it that I didn’t bother with.  I’m a knitter, not a beader.  The pattern had a lot of little cables.  When the kit came, I assumed that the picture was very good since I could hardly see the cables.  After many hours of knitting and accomplishing only two inches of pattern, I took a hard look at my room.  And, you know what?  I still could hardly see those damned cables!  So, naturally, I did what any red-blooded knitter would do.  I ripped it all out and went looking for a better pattern.  And the rest is history.  Socks that I can truly be proud of!  Thank you, Stephanie van der Linden.  I love your book, too.

I bought the June sock kit from yarn4socks to give it a try.  It came just as I was finishing the Noro gloves, so I started right on them.  I would have preferred that it was in one skein rather than two, otherwise I have no complaints.  The pattern went quickly and I like the look of it.  And, of course, I love the color.  You can’t go wrong with red as far as I’m concerned.  The company was quick to inform me of mistakes in the pattern which was nice.  For once, I did not change anything.  I’ve all ready made one sock and will be starting the other as soon as I finish writing this.061309 015061309 016
