I used magic loop again. I can not believe how easy it is to do!! 🙂 These are plain socks again. I think as Ollie likes the variegated yarns, it’s better to see way the stripes work out. He’s also not really a pattern-y kind of person. Although I do want to make some Haretons and a pair of Jules for him some time soon.
The new thing I learnt with these socks was using the double-stitch short row heels method. Vampy was kind enough to point out two sites that show this method a few posts ago and that’s what I did. I like it. It’s different to the wraps and takes a little getting used to and it’s definitely easier. I think it looks good too. The links for this method are here and here.
There are other things being made, but more about them in the coming weeks. 🙂
Happy Easter to everyone.
