Has anyone else had a really hard time picking out a pattern for their Sockapalooza 4 pal?
I had no trouble picking out a yarn, but my God, the pattern was a difficult decision. I finally decided to design my own sock. I've never done this before, and it is going really well. It's a mini cable pattern but it's done without using a cable needle.
Once I'm done the socks, I'll write up the pattern in case anyone wants it. I'm thinking it'll be good to have written down in case I want to use it for some socks for myself at some point.
My pal has larger feet than I do, so I cast on 68 stitches using 2.5mm Crystal Palace double pointed needles. I'm really liking the Sweet Georgia on 2.5mm needles. When I knit the Monkey Socks a few months ago I used 2.75mm. I was happy with the result, but I think that the 2.5mm may be even better suited to this yarn.
I cast on for the second one fairly early into the first one. I really don't want to end up with second sock syndrome on these ones!
