Well, a busy week it has been and I promised you more updates. So here goes.....
The Kid finally got around to sending pictures of the infamous running socks so I will share those first.
Inspired by: Move Your Fanny by Gigi Silva
(originally found at socktopia.net which is no longer avaiilable)
in Crystal Palace Panda Cotton in Vanilla Cream
55% Bamboo, 24% Cotton, 21% Elastic Nylon
on US #1 in a Women's Size 6
Gauge, cuff length, heel, ribbing and toe were changed - all subtly, but it is all in the details, right?
The Kid lives in So. FL and runs so I decided to make these for her. Having a breathable material with stretch for fit and machine washability was necessary so he Panda Cotton was perfect. The ribbing along the arches for support was what drew me to the pattern. The problem is she has such small feet, trying to get the ribbing in the right place was a bit of a challenge. From the picture, it looks like they have shrunk a bit with washing but I don't know that I would necessarily make any adjustment for it. While the Panda Cotton was a bit "splitty", it will definitely not hinder me from using it again. I love the yarn and the pattern - I can't wait to make some for myself!
