Dancing Socks

KPDancingSocks.jpg

More socks! These are for me. I finished them during the family Christmas gathering on December 23rd. I don't remember when I started them, but I know I did a LOT of sock knitting on the plane home!

I hadn't ever worked with a yarn with elastic in it before, that was interesting. I like it quite a bit, but unfortunately this particular yarn has been discontinued and the only colorways left are ones that I don't care for. And honestly I'd like these a LOT if they didn't have the green and orange. They're still fun the way they are, but I'd like them better if it were just the pink, purple, yellow in there. I did a picot bind-off on these, but I didn't do any ribbing before I bound off. So the stockinette curls and it ends up looking like a rolled edge instead of a picot edge.

The stats:
Needle: size 0
Yarn: KP Dancing, Tap colorway
Pattern: generic toe-up, stockinette, picot bind-off
Sizing: 14sts/needle for the toe, increase to 30/needle, 6" 'till the heel, 7 wraps/side for the heel
SPI: 7

note to self: next time you use an elastic yarn, make the sock smaller than normal!
