View Full Version : FO - Shimmer socks in LL

This post's Swedish word/phrase: "Jag har stickat ytterligare ett par strumpor" = "I've knit yet another pair of socks"

These are my Shimmer socks (http://www.magknits.com/Mar07/patterns/shimmer.htm)!!!

Knit in LL Sand Ridge. I used a short row toe, and a gusset heel knit "backwards" as described in Sensational Knitted Socks (where the heel flap ends up being under your heel and you pick up stitches on a horizontal line instead of vertical). I put in a picot edge at top and used a stretchy sewn bind off (http://www.woolywonder.com/classpages/sewncastoff/sewncastoff.htm) to finish it.

They fit perfectly and I :heart: them!

I love the colors, and it goes well with the stitch pattern!

ooh, pretty! I was thinking my LL jeans colorway would be good for these socks. Too bad my DH just hijacked it for me to make him socks of a different pattern. They are perfect!!!

Those are gorgeous, Anna! I have some hand painted sock yarn here that has been waiting for the perfect pattern. This might be it! :cheering:
