Vintage Rose Garter Socks

I had to frog (knitting and crocheting parlance for, “I f-ed up and I had to pull out all the stitches”) this sock a couple of three times. It’s not a particularly difficult pattern, but I miscalculated the size I needed to fit a particular ankle circumference. I also forgot to consider that the sock cuff will stretch, therefore I didn’t need to knit to the exact circumference, just enough so that the sock will stretch to fit comfortably. It’s been awhile since I knitted up a sock. Can you tell?

Vintage Rose Garter Socks

This pattern is from Cindy Guggemos’ book “I can’t believe I’m knitting socks,” published by Leisure Arts. I’ve written about this book before (here and here). I don’t really like this pattern. It’s much more simple than the eyelet chevron pattern, but it doesn’t seem to be as pretty. This yarn is an alpaca blend so the comfiness of the socks should make up for the lack of beauty.
