Fastest. Socks. Ever.
Ok, seriously, these don't even count in the "I'm not going to cast on anything new" category. I started them Wed. night, and here we are on Friday morning, with two, yes, TWO completed socks. Too bad that I wouldn't wear worsted weight socks very often, or I'd make all my socks this way.
Pattern: Easy Boot Socks
Needles: US 5 dpns
Yarn: Cascade 220 Superwash Paints in colour 9862
Mods: I worked the pattern on size 5s rather than size 6 - I wanted to make sure that the knit was tight. Also, worked on 5 dpns rather than 4 - the math just make more sense to me this way. The pattern is rather loosely written, I had to scratch my head and think hard about a couple of things, so if you try this pattern out and are having a hard time, shoot me an email or a comment here and I'll try to help you work it out.
If I were to knit these again (which I might, since they were a request and if the recipient likes them I will probably be making her more at Christmas time) I would definitely make the heel-flap longer.
