Socks Done!

Berlin Muster in progressFor the second entry in the Sock Knitter’s Pentathlon the socks were Berlin Muster. To say there was a pattern overstates things a tad. Really it was just a lace chart, and a tricky one at that. While my socks don’t match (I changed my mind about which stitches to keep on the foot and which to use on the heel between socks) I am pretty pleased with the results and feel like I have grown as a sock knitter!

Berlin Muster Picot hem detailIn a burst of speed, after working on these for six weeks, I turned the second heel and finished them up in four days. The fact that we were at the beach this week-end helped. Bunny hung out with his grandparents, B slept, and I knit each morning. Not a bad way to start a day!

Ravtails here.

Next up, Hemlock Ring… I wind the yarn tomorrow!


  1. They look fabulous! Particularly if you were just working with a lace chart – lace! of all things. I can’t see any difference and the lace really pops nicely.

    I’ve just discovered the Eye of Partridge heel myself. Isn’t it splendid?
