Tiny Solar Sock!



Worked on my Wee Tiny Solar Sock this weekend so I could get it entered into the groups contest thread on Ravelry. It had really odd construction. You started with an i-cord heel....moved on to the gussets...did the foot/toe (I really dislike two color knitting, too fussy)...then the leg. I'm so glad this was a teeny sock because I definitely would of had second sock syndrome. It was done with Dream in Color Starry which was nice, no splitting or anything negative. Don't know if I care for the silver bits in it though...Hope you all had a great weekend!

I'm SO glad to hear someone else confess that stranded knitting is just too fussy to be fun. I can honestly say I don't enjoy the results enough to bother.

I-cord heel? Interesting...

Wow that's teeny tiny! I think it came out great! (Tho the construction does sound odd to me too.- but that's from: Ms "I'm hating working Toe Ups") LOL!!

I haven't even seen any Starry yet, the effect is cool, but I'm not sure how I'd like the little bits in there as well.

I got one of those itty bitty sock kits for Christmas but I haven't tried it yet. Yours turned out cute.
