Sinful Socks

For today's Monday project feature, I have a pair of socks by Jaimi knit with one of the FF Seven Deadly Sins Sock Club colorways. The colorway is Gluttony. The colors for the yarn were inspired by creamy milk chocolate with touches of caramel.



Jaimi used a toe-up sock pattern from More Sensational Knitted Socks. It has an easy toe, a short row heel, and a picot hem. Jaimi reports that the stitch pattern is "sort of Stansfield 196." It began that way, but after realizing she made an error, Jaimi recharted the pattern to reflect what she had actually done and proceeded without having to frog her work. Very clever girl! And look at these lovely results:



With a relatively short leg on these socks, Jaimi used slightly less than half of the skein and so will be able to get another pair out of just one skein!

Pop over to Jaimi's blog for a look at more of her lovely work.

A big Thank You to Jaimi for sharing her FFFO photos! I have one more project in the queue to post next week and then my queue is dry, so step right up and send me those finished project photos! Just send me an e-mail with your photos attached or linked to your blog, along with any relevant details you'd like to share.

Great day to all!

Fabulous socks! Now I'm off to look up "Stansfield 196" in More Sensational Knitted Socks, to see how Jaimi modified the pattern. I love looking at photos of what other people are knitting!
