My pink and green socks are still stalled as I deliberate how to proceed, and so the progress on my latest Felici socks are hastened. Done! This shadow rib pattern (which I nicked from Neil’s Little Box of Socks during a knit night long ago) is about as complicated as I want to get on a striping yarn like Felici.
Because of the afterthought heel, the striping continues down the front uninterrupted, which is a quality I’m grown to admire in a striped sock:These match pretty well, too, although if you look at the toe tip you can see that I didn’t end up at exactly the same spot in the yarn. Not sure why.
I had 26 grams of yarn left, which was plenty. It was more than I needed to pull out yarn on the second ball to get to the same beginning spot.
Felici lovers, did you notice the big Felici sale on the Knit Picks website? Ummmm…… I did. I’ll make a visual confession when the box arrives.
