Order From Chaos

After a frenzy of knitting that I couldn't put down, I've finished the socks-in-progress that I showed you last week.

I call these socks "Order From Chaos" to reflect the experience of watching the stitch pattern emerge. After a couple of pattern repeats, it doesn't look like much. In fact, it looks a bit chaotic if you recall from the stubby sock-in-progress photo I previously shared:

As more and more pattern repeats are added, the strong vertical lines take hold and the patterning emerges.

The pattern for these socks (knit with my Merino/Tencel Sock Yarn) is all ready to go and is now listed in the Patterns section of my shop.

I really enjoyed knitting these socks. In fact, I couldn't put them down. The stitch pattern is easy to commit to memory and works up quickly, yet it's still entertaining to knit. It utilizes an interesting yet simple slip-stitch technique to create the the V-shaped detail.

All in all, my feet are quite happy with these latest socks.

Now on to something new . . .
