Two Week Timey Wimey Socks

They are done! I finished weaving in ends last night, hopped up on the coffee table, and proceeded to do a happy dance.  I have finished knee high plain vanilla socks in one day more than two weeks.  It kind of blows my mind at the speed with which they were executed, and I suspect the Doctor may have played a hand in this warping of the time vortex.

I love them.  They are so incredibly soft and they fit perfectly.  The yarn is Knit Picks Felici in Time Traveler (a specially produced, small quantity colorway – sorry folks!)

I’m kind of amazed at how symmetrical they turned out – this isn’t something I generally care about.  And, truth me told, I kind of wanted them to be crazy almost-matching stripes instead of spot on.  (Yes, that is my dirty laundry in the background – I gave up clean in exchange for knitting.  You are all guilty, too, so hush.)

I utilized a small amount of calf shaping and topped them off with some springy 2×2 rib to keep them up where they need to be.

The ease of making the socks has inspired me to dive into my stash and find all that funky yarn I had stashed for cool, colorful, vanilla traveling socks.  I realize that not all socks will be completed in two weeks time.  I am trying to be ok with this knowledge and recognize its truth.  Famous last words.

    I really like how precisely the color change landed on that heel it looks like the back is all brown and the bottom is all red. Glad you like them! And glad indeed that they are tall.

      Yeah – that was pretty awesome. I was debating what kind of heel I wanted to do. It was between an afterthought and the short-row, but I wasn’t quite thrilled with the bulls eye effect I saw on Ravelry. Thank you so much for the yarn – it is so comfy!!
