I believe I have mentioned before that I have knit a few socks over the years for Socker. Socker likes color patterns better than texture or solid stockinette, and I try to accomodate when I have time, patience, and thin enough yarn.
These socks were something of an experiment.
I knitted them in slip stitch patterns because I figured they would be thinner and fit under shoes better than stranded knitting. That worked.
I knitted on with triangular patterns and one, I think, with square patterns. That worked.
I used two yarns which were both sparkly and very close in value. That did not work so well. It is very hard, even in good light, in person, with your reading glasses on, to really appreciate the pattern.
Failure? Success? They were never Socker's favorites, but I learned a few things. You decide.
