When the hotel sink won’t hold water, you find something else in which to block your new socks.
And the shelf under the sink makes an excellent place in which to dry them.
Yes, Sockesan! is a finished project, and I am still highly pleased with the Noro Kureyon Sock yarn. Post blocking the fabric is thin, supple, and soft. The colors were always fab.
The pattern, well, there really isn’t a pattern. Cast on about 72 sts, decrease at back of sock (paired decreases about 4 sts apart every 8 or 10 rows) down to 62 sts, work heel flap from other end of ball so as not to interrupt stripes, then pick the original working yarn back up to work the gusset and foot. Kitchener closed. Block in ice bucket.
I am pleased.
