It’s been a glorious Sunday. This morning I got to have breakfast with two treasured friends, then I saw Maleficent and finished these socks in the theater: The yarn is Julianna”s Lucky Star Sock Yarn in Truly Outrageous. It has a hint of sparkle, but isn’t over the top with it.
I lucked out with the self-striping and my heel flap. The stripes were barely disturbed. Even though I know an afterthought heel would always allow uninterrupted self-striping, I just love the feel of a heel flap.
They’re just another pair of toe-up two-at-a-time socks done on magic loop with a heel flap. That’s my go-to vanilla sock format. I have enough left to make Z some socks, though I think I’m going to start making her socks as tube socks (no heels) so she can grow into them for a longer time. I’ll add this to the Operation Sock Drawer list.
