I've been a little remiss on knitting my new years resolutions. I planned to knit one pattern from each the knitting books that I owned at the beginning of 2016 as well as knitting some of the sock patterns that I had been avoiding. I dubbed the sock knitting 12in2016, one pair per month of the year. I wasn't avoiding the patterns because they weren't good, they weren't easy knitting and would challenge me. I don't always want the challenge but sometime I know I need it.
My most recent sock FO fit both my resolutions! These socks are from 101 Socks and one of the patterns from my 12in2016!
The multi yarn I picked up while on vacation in Hawaii a couple of years ago, both colors are Cascade Heritage. The pink is Heritage Paints and the green is Heritage Solids, I love how they knit up together!
The construction was interesting, I knit each roll separate first and then knit them together when they reached the correct length. I had a bit of trouble understanding what the pattern wanted because the translation into English was not the best. Once I understood they were a piece of cake.
Instead of following the book pattern for the heel I used my favorite Eye of Partridge heel and wedge toe combo. This combo fits my foot like a glove! They were a fun easy knit that helped me get back on track with my 12in2016. And they're just plain cute!
