I realised last night that I don’t have a small, train knitting-sized project to work on now that my Eyelet Chemise is getting so large. So I had a rootle through my stash (love how rude that sounds!), found some Regia sock yarn, and decided to make me some new socks with it.
I don’t just want to do a plain stitch pattern, as that would be boring, but equally I don’t want to do a fancy lace pattern, as that would probably get lost in the multicoloured yarn.
After a bit of a Ravelry search, I found this pattern. I kind of like it, but I really like this variation (these are Ravelry links, so I’m afraid you won’t be able to see them if you’re not a member). More rootling, and I came up with this combination:
I wasn’t too sure about it at first, but I’m liking how old fashioned the colour combination is turning out to be. This makes me think of a man’s or child’s tank top from the 1940s.
