These Neapolitan socks look tasty, and I hope my sister things so too. I held off giving them to her since they are already overdue and I finished them on Wednesday when the temperature got up to 103 degrees and she wasn't needing a pair of wool socks in this weather!
They took over a month, mostly because I have been lacking in concentration lately. But eventually I pulled them off. Even with some funky Kitchener stitch in which I somehow stitched through the back loops. I'll just call that a customized detail, not a mistake.
Do you see how the striping worked out on the heels? I love that detail, and it wasn't intentional, the stripes just worked out right. I love that kind of happy accident.
Generic sock pattern
one skein of Vesper Neapolitan
US size 1 1/2 bamboo DPNs
Today I cast on for a new sock, and I'm ready to start the heel flap, so this is zipping along. In fact, most of this was knit while the kids played at the wading pool.
