FO - Skew Socks
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.

This pattern is called Skew. It's free, and you can find it here.



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...













Thanks for taking the time to look!

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

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

You did a beautiful job!
