I'm slowing down...

Sock #12 for the Summer of Socks 2008.

Pattern : Vinnland by Becca Compton
Yarn: Cherry Tree Hill Supersock Merino in Fuscia
Needles: US1 (2.25mm) Knit Picks 32" circular
Construction: I used Judy's Magic toe for the CO (rather than a short row toe).
This pattern would be better (I think) with a gusset/heel flap, rather than a short row heel, as the sock gets a bit tight over the ankle at that point. This was a fun knit, with long memorizable repeats that make the sock seemingly go so quickly.

SLowing down is good. Those are beautiful and very juicy looking. Maybe when you step down it will be like pressing grapes. ;0)

12 socks & you are slowing down - that's already a record for me. Anyway, I love the socks - great pattern & you should knit on as I really enjoy reading about your sock knitting.
