I have another finished pair of socks to show you and the title refers to that teeny problem of flashing and pooling because it happened again.
I’m just not sure I like these and I considered abandoning them more than once but I didn’t because of the name of the yarn. It’s called “Beach House” by Great Adirondack and I bought it from the Loopy Ewe way back in the winter with plans to knit the socks while we were on vacation at our Beach House rental.
I started them on our first day at the beach and by the time we went home I had finished one sock. The second sock knit up quickly last week and they are done. This makes my 5th pair of socks for the Summer of Socks ’08.
And I don’t hate them but I don’t love them either. Ya know?
Oh, and many of you have recently asked about how to do a picot edge on a sock. I happily direct you to this tutorial at Claudia’s Blog. She explains it quite well and if you follow these directions you’ll have no problem with this technique.
And there we have Beach House Socks. The name is great but the socks? Meh.
