ESTHER SOCKSPattern: Esther, by Stephanie van der Linden
Socken-Kreativ-Liste, July 2006 A Yahoo Group
Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepard Sock, June 2008 Blueberry Snowcone
Purchased at Jimmy Bean Wool
Needle: Size 1 Brittany Birch
This pair of socks was very fun to knit. The 24 row pattern kept things interesting. I started knitting the size small on 60 stitches. After turning the heel I realized it would not fit. Ripped back and made the large size with 70 stitches. Still very snug. Below you can see the difference between the 60 and 70 stitches. These socks required concentration and were very time consuming. Cast on July 3, 2008, finished July 17, 2008.
