About 20 minutes ago, I finished the kitchener stitch. The photos are not great – the one above is suffering a bit from camera shake. Its much more difficult taking photos of your own foot!
I’m very happy with the fit – and I am glossing over any errors in the lace.
I also took a picture of a blocked and unblocked sock. While I can’t see any difference when they are on – it sure makes a difference to their “off the foot” presentation.
Pattern: Clementine’s Baltic Socks (available here)
Yarn: My own undyed fingering yarn, soon to be available for sale. I dyed it with Dylon dyes of royal blue and pink. They look mainly blue.
Pattern modifications: The sock was too short for my size 40 foot, and I did an extra repeat of the lace pattern, and modified the toe so that I descreased alternating second and third rows. I had to increase needle size to 2.5mm so that I could get the sock on my foot.
Needles: Addi turbo 2.5mm magic loop.
