This is the fastest piece of sock-knitting in my history!
I cast these on in preparation for FL's hospital visit on 10 June, and I cast them off on 17 June.
They were my constant companion for that week, accompanying me to Glasgow and back on the train, calming my anxiety in hospital and hotel room alike.
Pattern: Dotty from Irishgirlieknits
Yarn: Online Supersocke 100 Paradise Color, from Germany via an eebaay shop, approx £4 per 100g ball (these took less than one ball).
Verdict? I love this pattern. I have knitted it twice before and it just keeps on getting better. The spacing of the rows of dots gets larger as you speed down the leg and foot, and you start knitting faster and faster to knit "just one more repeat" until... oh look! Finished!
I took the time to match up the stripes on the two socks, resulting in only a few yards of "wasted" yarn.
