thigh highs? I was just teasing…suckers!
actually, I probably wasn’t. if I hadn’t made it with two ounces I’m sure I would’ve kept on going. we’ll just save that adventure for the next pair. for now I’m so ecstatic with my one little knee-high. I think I ended up increasing to 80 stitches and had enough yarn to knit a two inch cuff. as long as my scale isn’t lying, I should have exactly enough for the second sock. I don’t feel like tempting fate though, so I’ll be taking georgia’s offer on some extra yarn just in case (and to maybe make them a wee bit taller).
these socks are worrying me though. I don’t think I have the right shoes or skirt for them. these are definitely going to be skirt socks, but you have to carefully balance the look with the right shoes. one direction takes you into, what I like to call, “looking like a fool” territory, while another can make you look like you’re trying too hard. oh well, I guess this means I need to go shopping. I should probably knit knee-highs more often!
