Sock Shock

Spring Knitty is up! But you knew that. Most of the patterns in this issue don't really interest me, but there's one I fell in love with the moment I saw it: Clessidra.

As we all know, I'm a sock snob. Toe-up with short-row toes and heels, well, it's the only way to go. Clessidra is top-down with flap-heels and a grafted toe. I should hate it. I should turn my nose up at it. I should try to alter the pattern so it fits my sock-making style.

I want to make it as-is. I don't want to change a thing. Top-down? Fine. Flap heel? No problem. Kitchenered toe? I can do that. I just want these socks. They're so... perfect.

Maybe after I make one pair I can alter the pattern. ;)

Those socks...are...beautiful. They made me gasp. I can't wait to see you make these perfect socks even better. You have this power.

LOL...somehow I *knew* you were going to like Clessidra! Now you know what to work on once your Elizabethan stockings are done (or if you're like me, to work on simultaneously)!

Totally understand! I'm not a sock expert and only made one pair in my knitting life so far, but I would love to learn how to do toe up, short row... Clessidra is definitely on my to knit list.
