Piedi Peccaminosi

What are you most proud of? I'm proud for knitting my third pair of socks, my first pair of toe-ups, my first use of super-short circulars, and rocking a couple of personal modifications (rolled cuff instead of i-cord to echo the garter stitch heel a bit more). What advice would you give someone starting this project? This is really just a note to self: a single careful read of the pattern isn't enough. If you've put the project down for a while, read it again! This is why you won't see a purl section near the top of my socks. Oops.

immisceo made Piedi Peccaminosi with:

Class + Kit

Knit-Along 2016: Socks

with Lucy Neatby

  • The yarn is approximately 285m variegated 48% cotton / 39% wool / 13% nylon blend from Lidl. I used my 2.00mm Karbonz DPNs (15cm/6" length) for the first sock. Delighted to use an Addi super-short (20cm/8") circular for the first time on the second sock. Loved these! I forewent stitch markers for marker yarns.
  • US 0 / 2.0 mm / UK 14

Q&A with immisceo

sylfel asked:
Your socks are beautiful! I like the rolled edge. I considered the same as you when knitting my serpentine socks, but I chose a crochet bind off instead of the I-cord ;)
immisceo answered:
Thank you so much! I added a couple of stitches to that part just to make sure it didn't cause a 'sausage casing effect'. Happy to report it worked a treat. The roll is comfy and stays put. A crochet bind-off sounds like a great modification too!
Alison JJ asked:
They look good- its a lovely soft blue-green yarn you have used
immisceo answered:
Cheers! They're lovely and soft on the feet as well.
AMidnightSoul asked:
They look great! I love the colors.
immisceo answered:
Thanks! I didn't purchase the kits for any of the socks, but wanted all of them to look really distinctive. If Lucy teaches us one thing, it's to play with colour!
Lucy Neatby asked:
Pretty!
immisceo answered:
Thanks, Lucy! I learned so much with this pattern. So liberating to ditch the cable needles for this one. You may have created a sock-knitting monster!
