The houseguests have come and gone. Here's some eye candy while I set the house to rights.
Last week, Pam's Sockapaloooza angel socks went on their last trek with me – to the post office to jump in the mail. I neglected to take a side-by-side photo of the finished anklets, but here's a photo showing the front of the leg and top of the foot on one sock and the back of the leg and sole of the foot on the other, which shows off the self-striping yarn in lace pattern and plain stockinette stitch.
While some Trekking colorways are an endless surprise, this one (#129) had reasonably regular repeats, so the socks are close (but not exactly identical) twins. And like the Queen of the Jungle Stripe socks, this pair has mirror-image symmetry, because handknitters can.
As an additional refinement, they have star toes, a logical finish for the stitch pattern, #6 in Knitting Lace by Susanna E. Lewis. The toes are also mirror images, natch.
It was great fun to knit up these anklets for Pam – plus they had a few excellent Trek-along adventures (see July 5, June 20, and June 14). I hope they prove a good fit and she gets lots of enjoyment wearing them!
