Anastasia Socks for Mom


I started these while I was home on vacation at the end of June. They'll be going in the mail shortly as they're for my mom! The pattern is toe-up so I didn't have to mess with that part of it. It's written with a short-row heel, but I swapped that out for a Widdershins heel. And I didn't do the cuff ribbing as written either. I did (k1, p1, k1, p2, k2, p1, k2, p1, k2, p2) 4 times. I don't remember why I changed that. Maybe I didn't have the pattern handy when it came time for the cuff? Not sure.

Once I did a couple rows in the pattern it was really easy to remember what I was supposed to do when. I'd like to try it again but with a bunch more of the spirally things instead of just 4 of them.

The yarn is the same kind I used for the Aunty Patty socks but a different colorway. I really like the way the colors work in this yarn, however it's a bit splitty which can be annoying if I'm not paying attention.
