Sea Wool Pomatomus


Sea Wool Pomatomus

Finally finished!! I love these socks! Is it wrong to be in love with a sock? I think not!

These are probably the hardest thing I have knit to date. The pattern isn't particularly hard, but you do have to pay attention. The hard part is all of those kbl (knit through back loop). I think I am going to have to take a few days off from tiny needle knitting.

These are knit with Fleece Artist Sea Wool. A lovely yarn with a beautiful sheen. I have another hank dedicated to some Monkey socks.

I saw these socks a few weeks ago and fell in love!!! Is the pattern really not that hard to do? Was it nice to knit on the circular needles? I have a few coming in the mail this week!

Thanks for such a nice comment!!

This really wasn't that hard to knit. You just need to keep track of the row you are on. I highly recommend using a row counter! I love knitting socks with the magic loop method. I only used dpns when I was turning the heel, but you wouldn't have to. Feel free to ask any questions if you run into any problems. :)
