Basic Toe Up Socks 5 - One Sock Done

I've been working on this sock off and on during odd moments riding in cars, listening to telecons, waiting for Bruce, and I finally finished it up this morning.  I immediately cast on the second sock and knitting that through the toe increases.  As simple and repetitive as this pattern is I still screw up occasionally.  On the last pair I knit I somehow started the ribbing half a round early, and on the second sock of this pair I managed to increase during a rest round on half of the sock.  I discovered this when I was on the second to last increase round and I counted my stitches and half of my sock had 26 and half had 28.  I did not rip back, I just did the increases on the half that only had 26 stitches and called it good.

I still don't know what to call these socks, and I don't know what the colorway is called.  I've searched their website and can't find it (I bought the yarn several years ago) and I even searched my email and found an old receipt that might have it, and it might be Cupcake, but somehow I just don't think this yarn looks like a Cupcake.

Pattern:  Basic Toe-Up Sock from Custom Socks by Kate Atherley

  1. I just finished a pair of socks as well. I finished Kitchener-ing and *boom*. They were *immediately* stolen by a new girlfriend. I suppose I should be honored?!
