summer knitting projects

After a winter of knitting knee socks, its now time to switch to summer footwear.  If you search the web for info on “yoga socks” or “Sandal socks”, there are many variations on this theme. Guess I’m not the only one who needs or wants to cover parts of their feet even in sandals.  These little anklets haven’t been worn in a pair of Sandals yet, but have had their debut in a pair of sneakers and did fine. No bunching, shifting.  How they will do in sandals has yet to be seen, and I’ll probably find that out today as it will be warm.

This pair is made with one 50gram skein of Wildfoote sock yarn, 75% washable wool, 25% nylon.  The guage called for was 7 stitches using # 1 or 2 needles.  I used #3.  Seemingly took forever as those small needles caused my hands to really cramp up.  Better get used to it as I’ve got a number of skeins of this weight sock yarn to make both regular full socks, anklets, and more of these toe less variety.  As a matter of fact, there is another pair in this same yarn on the needles already.  This second pair will have a few more rows in the ankle part.

BTW, I wear a size 11 shoe, and these were knit until the foot was 7” from the back of the heel, and then switched to six rows of rib knit before b/o.  Heel and gusset is normal sock pattern.

ps. at the end of a day with sandals, they were fine. no bunching , no turning, no slipping down001 (800x600) (800x600)
