I have just the toe to finish on my second Zigzagular Sock in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Holi Festival (Hey, guess what, you all just bought all the Holi Festival! But I do have the other confetti colors of Optic, Modern Fair Isle and Cosmic Wonder Dust). This was a very enjoyable knit and a departure from what seems to be 6 months or more of self patterning and self striping socks. I'm a fan of vanilla socks, plain socks that just allow me to sit back and relax and rarely look down at my project while I'm watching the boys play or enjoying TV. These socks were pretty vanilla, but with a little strawberry streak. Lots ot stockinette with just this one zig zag panel. A very enjoyable knit for me.
I'm not someone who often tears out mistakes in socks. If I knit the wrong stitch once in awhile. or do a left leaning decrease instead of right, it's quite possible that I'll leave it there in socks b/c it's rarely noticed again by me or others. Afterall, these are worn on the feet. But with this sock, I tore back a row or two when I made mistakes. This pattern is so graphic and the color so pale that each mistake was quite noticable to me. I still think there may be one flaw or two that I didn't quite fix correctly, but I'm still quite pleased.
What new sock patterns have you enjoyed lately?
