I started a pair of Vinnland a while ago and have worked on them in the background throughout August and September. These will be payment to a coworker who is doing an artsy favor for me.
Ava took this picture for me!
Yarn: Sweet Georgia Superwash Sock Yarn in Life Aquatic colorway
Needles: Size 1.5
Modifications: Described below
I really love the way this pattern turns out – but I didn’t enjoy the process very much. I didn’t get the hand of the pattern until well past half way on the second sock. By then, I was able to memorize the pattern and it went much more quickly! You can see progress on the sock here and here.
In this picture, you can see my modifications. I made the socks a little short in the leg because the recipient said she intends to wear them in the house as slippers and my personal opinion is that short socks are better for that. I also decided to leave the back of the leg plain stockinette instead of continuing the patters because the pattern pulls in so much – I didn’t want to leg to be too tight. I also used the tubular bind off for the cuffs (my favorite for toe up socks).
