Last night, I finished another pair of socks. Can you tell I'm loving having the summer off, even if my bank account is not. :teehee:

This pattern is called Skew. It's free, and you can find it here (http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEwinter09/PATTskew.php).

The socks look simple enough...stockinette stitch; however, this pattern called for a bit of a unique construction.

This construction, along with the endless increases and decreases, lends to the tilted affect. It also made for interesting heels...

I really love the lines that are created by the increases/decreases...

The yarn is Cascade Heritage Paints, and the colorway is #9906. It's the last of what I bought myself for my birthday in March. It was WONDERFUL to knit with...no splitting or anything! It was perfect for this pattern.

I knit this pattern on size 1 (2.5mm) needles, but I changed to 0's (2.00mm) for the ribbed cuff. It took me slightly over a week, so it is a fast knit.

Here are the rest of the pictures I took...

That's a really interesting pattern! I love the yarn and the diagonal striped effect it gives with the pattern too. Fantastic job! :cheering:

The pure geometry of that pattern inspires me to knit a pair of socks.

You did a beautiful job!

Wow. Intricate appearance. :cool:

Unfortunately my browser has a rather jittery scrolling and add the skewed pattern and it just about made me dizzy scrolling past the multiple pictures. :thud:
