Another class I am taking at the Sock Summit is Meg and Amy’s class on arch-shaped stockings. I know, I know, I am taking two classes with Meg and Amy. The other one was EZ’s Art Stocking. It was just the way it turned out in the chaos that was registration, luckily for me.
My homework was to knit a child’s sock up to the end of the heel. The pattern is fishbone cables with twisted rib at the sides.
I liked the pattern so much that I used it for my next toe up socks which are for Mum. It turns out that the only differences between our feet is her feet are 0.5 inches longer and her ankle is 1 inch skinnier.
I like the way the pattern is turning out and soon I will have fudge calculate the heel. I want to a have a few less stitches on the leg for Mum so that it doesn’t slip down. So I intend to reduce the number after the heel is turned.
I have two of each of the arch-shaped and art stockings, so I should actually be able to do stuff in class and then practice it immediately afterwards. There are some advantages to convalescing.
