It’s just way too big for me, and I think the smaller size would honestly be uncomfortable to knit. Going to have to find someone who it’ll fit and who will enjoy it, I suppose.
(Made with a handspun from Sarah that I don’t think I ever put in my stash, used up basically all of it.)
Making a pair for myself for both cosplay and for wearing while working.
color is SY-16 Columbine
decided to add the Mercury lace pattern at the start of the gusset because just stockinette is meh, and it feels like an ankle sock might be nice with lace

these started out as Sunday Swing Socks but I decided I didn’t like having yo’s at the ends of the needles (only once every few rounds, but still) — this pattern fits what I’ve already knit and it seems like a nice chill sock pattern.
A little small, but I like how the striping fell on it. (I’m hoping it’ll get a little bigger with blocking)
I wasn’t sure about it at first with the handspun, but I’m really liking it now.

I had to rip out about 15 rows of the second mitt after realizing I should’ve started at a different place in the chart! But it knits up fast enough that it wasn’t a big deal.
TBQH, I’m very disappointed with the bind-off. I tried a stretchy one for a few stitched, didn’t like the look of it, and redid with my regular bind-off held loosely. It was too tight after blocking. 🙁
I may seriously unravel the bind-off and try again?

I unraveled the bind-off (undoing the woven-in edge was kind of a nightmare) and redid it with a stretchier technique (k2tog style) with a #8 needle in the contrast color. (Didn’t have enough of the MC.) I really like both the feel of the stretchier edge, nicer to wear, and the almost eyelet-like look with the contrasting color. MUCH BETTER.
