Classy Slip Ups

Classy Slip Ups

Pattern: Classy Slip Ups from Knit Socks!
Yarn Used: Mountain Colors Bearfoot, color Pineneedle 1 skein
Needle Size: Addi Turbo 20" size 2 circs
Started/Finished : ? sometime in February I think/4.25.05

My second pair of socks is completed. This is also my first pair of socks done on 2 circular needles. They went so quickly comapared to dpns! I knit almost the whole second sock, except for about 4-5 inches on the cuff, in 24 hours. I did not like the slip stitch in the cuffs as much as I thought I would have and did not continue it down the instep of the sock like I was supposed to. This yarn has subtle color and I think the slip stitch pattern did not do it justice. I much prefer the St st foot to the patterned cuff. I also converted the pattern which was written for dpns to 2 circular needles, which wasn't very hard although it does sound impressive.
