• Knitting & Crafting

    FO Friday: Katsura

    These socks took me eight months to finish and then I delayed photographing them for another three months. All in all, it took me about a year to get this post up. I am not knitting as much as I use to be. When I started these socks, I hoped it would get me back into it. In the past, I could finish a pair of socks in two weeks even while working full-time. I blame myself for picking this pattern. The twisted stitches made these socks very slow. It’s too bad as these were my first pair of socks from this book.

    Katsura, started September 2, 2014, finished June 2, 2014.Ravelry Project Page

    Modifications & Notes:

    • Judy’s Magic CO 2AAT on ML using La-Rink and La-Link for toe increases.
    • Fleegle Heel
    • Yarn came with reinforcing thread so I used it for toes but forgot the heels
    • K2P1 ribbing
    • Jenny’s Surprisingly Stretchy BO

    Cost of Project: Yarn was Random Act of Kindness gifted from Ravelry. Thank you. Cost of book was around $10-15CAD probably.
    Would I knit it again? No.
