I almost thought I wouldn’t make it. I kept thinking, “But they’re ankle socks!” How could a pair of half socks take so long to make? And with a mesh fabric no less! It’s a bit of a mystery to me. Needless to say I’m happy I finished the socks in time and so very happy with how they fit. As you can see, the mesh pattern gives it a sort of accordion-like structure so they look shrunken at first and once on my feet they stretch. So cool and so pretty! If you’re interested in making these socks here is the pattern I used.
I mentioned in a previous post about my yarn amount underestimation. At this point I could sense panic building up but I told myself if I didn’t have enough yarn I’d just have to use some leftover yarn from another pair of socks, which is what ended up happening.
