For some reason, I have saved my Ice Cream Waffle socks to wear after blogging about them - so now that I have taken pictures and am composing my FO / Creative Friday post, they have finally made it on to my feet *laughs*
I really like the way the yarn pooled on the foot - but then, I actually like it when my sock pools into interesting patterns ;)
I'm not 100% convinced by these socks, sadly. I knit them to the pattern size that had 64 stitches, because I pretty much always knit 64 stitch socks. However that's when they are plain, and this pattern has very little give in it. So they're a little snugger than I would normally like, even after blocking.
When they're on my feet, the way they stretch makes the pattern quite hard to see, which is a shame because it is a nice pattern (V Junkie)
I really like the circles/waffle effect. I'm not too sure about the cuff though, I think a ribbed cuff tends to make a bit more sense, the one in the pattern has a tendency to roll.
One thing I am liking so far is the heel - it's a short row heel but done in garter stitch instead of stocking stitch. I wasn't too sure how that would feel on, but it's really soft and bouncy. Time will tell on that though! If it works, I might do all my short row heels this way - no purling required *laughs*
I have just under half a ball of this yarn left, and I have some plain brown yarn too - so there may be some interestingly striped socks in my future. But I have a lot of sock yarn, so that probably won't happen for some time!
I know I mentioned on Wednesday that I have a few more finished objects to share, but I think I'll save those for another Friday ;)
