Howdy. I am new.


This is my second pair of socks from sks. I made one of the simple cable patterns first, though I cant rememer which one, and to be honest I am just way too lazy to get up and look. Forgive me for the starbucks cup, It was a gift.I thought I would like the chevron pattern more. I am just about ready to turn the heel. Its been a slow sock. I gotta get movin on it. I apologize for being a bad blogger.

Lovely yarn - what is it?

I found that chevron pattern slow going and didn't have enough stretch for my large ankles. I ended up gifting the finished socks to a slim ankled friend.

Yeah. I think thats another reason Im not really enjoying it. I keep trying it on and its a b*tch to get around my heel. I just thought the pattern would have more give with the sort of ribbing effect its got goin on. I was hoping to make them for myself, but I have a feeling they will be gifted as well.

I'm glad I've read your comments. I've got 'big ankles' too & will now avoid this pattern.

Cheers

Cute! Sorry you are having stretch issues. I too have a bigger ankle and I always have trouble with chevron patterns.
