Last night I cast on my second Loopy Academy Grad School pattern. As you know I’m majoring in socks. The requirement for this project is that the sock have an afterthought heel. I could have gone with my usual sock and just thrown in an afterthought heel but I decided that since this is Grad School I really should try to stretch my stills. I found a pattern called Afterthought Everything Socks by Erica Kempf Broughton. Basically to knit this pattern you knit a long tube where each end is the cuff of one sock and waste yarn is added for the heels and toes. So you knit cuff, leg, foot for first sock and while still attached you continue with the foot, leg and cuff for the second sock, in that order. It sounds wild to me so I just had to do it.
The yarn is more Cascade Heritage. This color is forged iron.
Have you ever made something just because the method of making it is kind of weird? I have to admit that this isn’t my first time. I like trying out unusual construction.
