My feet aren’t swollen

I finished these socks back in February. They were my Knitting Olympics project. But at the time of finishing them my left foot was too swollen to wear the sock. So here comes the FO post they deserve.

Pattern: Skew, by Lana Holden in Knitty winter 09 (Ravelry)

Yarn: 1 skein of Colinette Jitterbug in Adonis blue

Needles: 2.5 mm

Started: 13 February 2010

Finished: 26 February 2010

Modifications: None. Well if you don’t count gauge. My feet are small.

Notes: I haven’t knit that many socks, but this is truly a completely different way of knitting a sock. Just take the plunge and follow the pattern and trust that it works even if you have no idea where you are and what you are doing. They fit really well and it was a joy to knit. However, this was the first time I tried this yarn. I’ve been wanting to try it for quite some time. It did not stand up well to my high expectations, especially not since there was a knot  in it. It’s probably still a good yarn but just not as fabulous as I thought before trying
