Mountain Path Socks
Kari Verge, who co-hosts the TwoTangledSkein podcast, released the Mountain Path Socks last Sunday. She designed these socks using a skein of my sock yarn in the Mountain Top At Dusk colourway (shown on pattern page) that I had donated to the podcast to review last fall. This is the first relased pattern that was designed using a skein of my yarn.
I volunteered to test knit this pattern for Kari. I decided to test out both the medium and large sizes since I owed my Mom a pair of socks using a skein from her stash and a pair of socks for myself in my new yarn.
My Mom has a few skeins of my sock yarn in her stash so I chose the one in the Emerald Isles colourway (green/blue socks). I knit the medium size (64 sts) using 2.25 mm needles and I have the first sock completed. This sock features cables patterns set off against a purl background, interesting detail on the heel flap, and the gusset decreases are on the bottom of the foot. I really like how the cables that start on the side of the foot move to a point on the top of the foot near the toes.
I used a skein of my Merino Single Ply Fingering yarn in the Marmalade colourway for my socks as I want to test out how this yarn will wear for socks. I knit the large size (72 sts) using 2.25 mm needles and I have the first sock almost completed .
Kari has kindly offered a discount coupon code for this sock pattern to the members of my Ravelry Group (Yvieknits Yarns). You can find the details about the code here.
