Finished Ravelympics object: Pomatomus Socks

Pattern: Pomatomus socks, from Knitty, Winter 2005

Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy, in Visual Purple.

Needles: 2.75mm

Modifications: I reversed the lace pattern on the second sock, and copied Amanda by finishing the toe at 24 stitches rather than the 12 stitches called for in the pattern

Notes: Phew! I finished these during the closing ceremonies of the Olympics after a mad sprint to the finishing line on Saturday night and Sunday morning. I love how these socks look, but all the twisted rib has played havoc with my wrist; I don’t recommend this pattern if you, like me, have a tendency to get RSI. I also love this yarn and will definitely be using it again.

What I learnt: A number of things. I learnt a new cast on method for single rib, which I’ll share soon. I learnt that knitting for a deadline is not for me, but that knitting something along with other people is.
