At last, I have finished those Dapper stripey socks I showed you:
But man, was that a lot of ends to run in!
this is the price of changing colours for the cuffs and heels and toes, which I really think looks fantastic but is only just worth the extra effort because I don't love running in ends.
I'm not even sure I'm good at it, though I know this angled approach that Trish taught me does hide the tail end effectively.
I just wish it hid it as well on the wrong side, because I am still thinking socks would look fabulous worn purl side out. But maybe that's just too much to ask of stripes? It would probably be fine with a solid colour.
Or not. Can you see where I've run in ends to the same shade of stitches? I can.
Anyway, they're done:
And so cute:
And now I want to knit more socks. Will this obsession never end?
(hopefully not as long as I like to wear them, right?)
