Last night I cast off the second Skew sock.
I’m so glad I didn’t follow through with my plan to abandon the second sock. It came out so beautifully. I love how the colors pooled and how the heel does that swirly thing.
Kudos to the designer for figuring out this elegant sock construction. Unlike “regular” socks (where you can sort of eye-ball the heel placement) Skew is hardly intuitive. But the pattern is clearly written and easy to follow, even though it was a challenge for me because I had to pay attention to it. It was a thoroughly enjoyable knit and I’m so pleased with the end result. And yes, I stopped the ribbing on the second sock about 1/2 an inch too soon. I’m okay with that.
