Maya Socks

September 29, 2007

And these are the finished socks with the stretchy cast on. Well, one of them anyway… the other one does match, honestly. I just forgot to take the photo of them both together!

Maya Sock

The yarn is Lana Grossa Cotton Maya, 45% cotton, 42% wool, 13% nylon. Knitted from the top down, with a band heel and a more gently rounded toe shape.

I think I understand this sock knitting addiction now. The quest is not to knit socks, but to knit the PERFECT socks. I haven’t yet succeeded, and I’m not sure I want to. It’s much more fun trying out the different techniques for the heels and toes. It’s even better when the yarn is interesting in its own right. This sock fits quite nicely over the heel, and the toe is almost right. I have a few ideas on how to improve the fit of the toe, I may try a round (as opposed to a standard) toe shape next time.
