The Mystery Sock proved to be the perfect way to keep Sock Mojo around. He stayed the whole month, and is still hanging out, because he had such a nice visit. Part of the reason he has enjoyed himself was the interesting pattern Kirsten devised. He was in a state of delight all month! As if to add icing to the cake, Kim's yarn made the pattern that much more interesting and enticing.
Knitting with Kim's yarn is like viewing a pointillism painting. Each stitch looks to be knit with a different color, but when viewed as a whole the colors blend in the eye and create a warm and unique colorway. Moroccan Spice was the perfect mix of earthy tones and shades, and I must say, Sock Mojo and I were always entertained by it's changes.
See the heel on the Mystery Sock? It is my first successful Eye of Partridge heel. It's doubtful anyone has had the trouble I have had in keeping the stitch count right all the way through to the heels end. I owe credit to Carole who made a very astute observation. She thought the secret might be to do all four pattern rows before you put the sock down for a break. That way one never need wonder what row came next. I light bulb went off (I can be quite dim at times) and I was able to execute said heel perfectly when the time came! I am easily entertained and love little knitting tricks.
The best yarn, the best pattern, the best Mojo made Socktoberfest a blast!
I love my SOCKS!
