sock roundup

the pomatomus socks (pomatomi?) are finished, so i thought i'd take advantage of temporarily having an in-house sock photographer & post some pics & specs of other finished socks as well (before she lost the patience to photograph socks - it's surprisingly hard to take pictures of your own feet!).



pattern: pomatomus from knitty
yarn: cherry tree hill supersock, colour unknown (i got it in a swap without its ball band)
modifications: shortened the toe slightly as i felt the original pattern made the toes too long & narrow
(i've included a picture that more clearly shows the stitch pattern, as the photographer had had a beer & the full-size picture is a little wobbly.)




pattern: embossed leaves socks from interweave knits winter 2005
yarn: koigu kpppm colour 136 (2 skeins)
modifications: i carried the leaf lace pattern down onto the heel flap so i can wear these with backless mules & look fancy




pattern: my own; a basic 3x3 rib with a braided cable down the back of the leg & onto the heel flap, again for the backless shoes
yarn: koigu kpppm colour 326, 2 skeins
