I did manage to clean my craft area just enough to find a plastic tapestry needle. Not my first choice but it got the job done and my Stark Effect Socks are complete!
Pattern: My own 68 stitch toe up vanilla sock “recipe”
Yarn: String Theory Colorwork Inertia Self Striping in the Stark Effect Colorway
Needles: US 1
They turned out fantastic and a great fit on my foot. As with all my afterthought heels I add in extra plain rounds to the heel to accommodate my high instep.
They are also almost a perfect match. Which I totally managed and did on purpose. It does mean I have to tiny balls of yarn left that aren’t in color sequence. I will still find something to do with them, probably my memory blanket?
In the meantime, I’m off to pick out my next sock project! Happy Knitting!!
