Listen To the Episode
First sock off the needles! I really dig the self-striping yarn (Lucid Dream in Board Shorts by @juliannapuccini) and coordinating yarn (by @meadowcroftdyeworks). Pattern is a basic vanilla toe-up in stockinette, with a medium wedge toe from #SockArchitecture by @laraneel, a #🐠👄😚👠 by @soxtherapist, and a variation of #JennysSuprisinglyStretchyBindOff as described in the Fergus Socks pattern by @yarnesty. So, basically, a Frankenstein of several simple techniques that are combining to be my standard. *AND* my toe is already constructed for the second sock, so I'm ready to get going! #OperationSockDrawer #knitting #knittersofinstagram #grinchalong #grinchalong2015
