I figured I would make this an official post rather than a hint in the sidebar of the website for October’s Skinflint Sock Club project. I’m very close to finishing test sock #1 for my new pattern release, 28:06:42:12. If those numbers sound familiar, it’s because that is when the world will end.
I will have two sizes calculated out, one for medium, and one for large. As I suspect the large one will fit the husbeast (who may become my (un)willing model for the pattern photo), you should be able to fit this sock on most average width feet. I’m actually pretty surprised at how stretchy the leg is turning out to be. My first draft fit a little tight, which is why I went up a size to begin with. Either way, it should be fairly easy to resize if need be.
What will you need for this little project, should you choose to join in?
100gr grey-blue fingering weight sock yarn
1 to 2 vials of #8 beads in Gunmetal (or, if your yarn is rather dark, try some frosted white beads instead)
Cable Needle. Maybe. Depends on whether or not you’re adept at cabling without one.
A rather nify sidebar to all this? The husbeast mentioned that the leg design would make a great set of armwarmers for thems who cycle. I’m almost inclined to agree with him.
So, grab some yarn for October, snag a DVD or Blu-Ray of Donnie Darko wherever you buy your movies (or rent it on Netflix) and settle in. Socktoberfest is coming soon!
