I've knit five whole pairs of socks now. And already I'm trying to design a pair.
You'd think I'd stick with the traditional top-down, slip-stitch heel, pick a stitch pattern from a book and go with it kind of sock design.
I'm borrowing from the Riverbed architecture in Cat Bordhi's New Pathways book. And I haven't knitted a Riverbed sock yet. I'm applying a stitch pattern called "sand" from a vintage stitch pattern book. Not sure what the heel will look like yet.
Aw, nothing ventured, nothing gained. We'll see how Sand in My Socks comes out. Here it is at the start. The yarn is Poem Sock by Wisdom Yarns. A bit thick 'n thin for my tastes, but the colors are nice.
If it comes out well, I'll post the pattern.
