52 Pair Plunge II - some FOs and some WIPs

Finished sock #1 of Francie and sock #1 in a simple ribbing in Austermann Step. Need to knit the mates for those.

FO #1 - Crystal Palace Maizy in Sky Blue.


FO #2 - unknown wool

Here's the most recently finished pair, in an unknown worsted weight wool that was gifted to me. Basic sock, CO 24 on size 4US. K2, P2 for 12 rounds. Knit 12 rows in the heel flap. After heel turn and picked up stitches, decreased back to 24 sts, continuing k2,p2 pattern on instep. Worked even until it looked long enough, then decreased for toe down to 8 sts total. Grafted toe.

52 Pair Plunge II - Sock 0.5 "Francie"

Francie - sole

Sock #1 of 2 of first pair finished!!

In Crystal Palace Maizy (corn/elastic nylon) in "sky blue". The yarn was a bit splitty, but not too bad with this pattern. Pattern is Francie.

Here's a link to my project on Ravelry.

I am kind of "meh" about the broken ribbing on the leg. It just doesn't seem to "GO" with the rest of the sock. I don't mean to sound ungrateful for the hard work of the designer, I can just never leave well enough alone. If I were to do this sock again, I would modify the leg to have the same type of V pattern that you see on the foot.
