Still Skewed

Still working on the Skew socks, granted a little slower than before with all the embroidery buzzing around here.

I still like the way they are working out and still plan to make myself a pair to fit me in the future.

I agree with some that the pattern is worth doing in a yarn that shows off the peculiar constructions. This one I am working on the leg right before the short rows start.

This one is almost done and I have about an inch more of ribbing to go.

A close-up of the origami heel. This pattern is definitely proof of a mind that like puzzles. I hope the designer continues on this path and has more interesting constructions to give us.

I am still trying to figure out whether or not to do a give away on my blog for them or if I should donate them. Donated they are more likely to find a small foot to wear them, but I wouldn't get a chance to see how they end up looking on a foot. Selfish, I know, but still. We shall see.


  1. lovely colours.... i have seen my mom knitting but never was able to do the way wen is the give away:-) :-)

  2. Beautiful yarn, but "we" are still being very gentle with my sock mojo... nothing challenging at all...

  3. Those are so cool, very nice job :)

  4. I can't quite see how it's going to fit a foot yet, either. Looks interesting, though!
