fo: SpringTastic Socks!
SpringTastic Socks by Stefanie Goodwin-Ritter
Yarn: Manos del Uruguay Alegria
Mods: I started with the 9" sock for the width, but only knit 7" before doing the toe decreases for my size 7 feet. I reduced the toe length by only knitting 6 decrease repeats (decrease 1 row, k 1 row), then decreasing every row for 6 rows. I then sewed the toe closed with 28 stitches on the needles instead of 24 to reduce the point for my blunt toes. The fit is perfect!
Here's my project page on Ravelry.
I was already sold on hand knit socks, but if I weren't these would've done it. They're so adorable and beyond comfortable! How have I gone so long wearing ill-fitted socks? :)
