I’ve been on a real sock kick recently… and I’ve finished another pair!
I knit the Darjeeling Socks by Cat Bordhi from the The Knitter’s Book of Socks
See the project’s Ravelry page, here.
Previously blogged about:
I was super-excited to work on these socks because Cat Bordhi is a genius at sock construction… and this pair sported an awesomely-interesting arch increase. Take a look at the bottom of the sock… see the arch decrease coming out of the heel?
So, instead of a traditional gusset, the sock has shaping that contours to the arch of your foot… comfy and so much fun!
The sock also features an interesting toe… I just love learning about different sock options!
The socks fit nicely, and kept my interest piqued as I was knitting them. I don’t think I’ll knit this exact pair again, but I’m very happy with the toe and heel/arch techniques, and I’ll probably put those components to use in another sock.
The other feature that I really love is that there’s ribbing at the Achilles’s tendon, which makes the sock slurp in at just the spot where your leg is smallest. Yay!
Have a great weekend!
