My Tardis Socks are coming along. If you don’t know what a Tardis is, it’s from the TV show Dr. Who (great show, you should watch it!)
With (mostly) steady attention thanks to the motivation of the Socks With Sarah KAL, slowly but surely, they are growing. Some days I just manage a round or two, some days a little more. There have even been one or two (or more) days when I didn’t touch them at all (shhhhh! Don’t tell on me!) but I’m trying to do better at that.
I’ve reached the “windows” now, which is the first section of colorwork. I love it because it’s interesting and the “door panel” portion had just started to get boring.
I had added some ribbing to the bottom of the foot to make it a little stretchier and more forgiving on size. This pair was supposed to be for my husband, and I think they will fit him…but they fit me nicely so far too, and I really like them, so we’ll have to wait and see who actually gets them in the end.
This is my first toe up pair, with a basic short row heel and no gusset. I don’t love the way they look when laying flat, but they fit well and look nice on my feet, and that’s what counts.
I was really hoping to have these done for C2E2 this weekend, but I don’t think I’ll make it as I still have quite a ways to go. That’s ok though, I’m sure socks are the last thing we’ll be thinking about when we’re there!
