Anastasia Socks-FO!

21 10 2007


Finally finished my Anastasia Socks with my Artsygal Superwash Merino Sock yarn.  LOVE the pattern and LOVE the yarn. 🙂

I did make a few changes to the pattern so that it would fit my foot with this specific yarn.  I did my gauge swatched, figured out how many stitches I would need so that it would fit my foot right and just altered the pattern from there.  I cast on 12 stitches to each needle and did Judy’s Magic Cast on.  I increased to 36 stitches per needle and added an extra three knit stitches between the decreases so that I had the right number of stitches. Anastasia socks I stopped 2 inches before the heel and wrapped until there were 12 live stitches in the middle.  After picking up my wrapped stitches at the heel I picked up a few extra on the sides so that I wouldn’t have any holes then decreased them in the next row.  I did the 6 inch cuff and started the ribbing on the inside of the socks.  Because I chose to start the ribbing there I was about half way through one of the decrease/yarn over rows.  I fudged my ribbing and pretty much did whatever I wanted.  It works.  😉

Now for the close-up!  I’m including this cause I like pictures.  hehe.

Also I just think it looks better than my other pictures of the socks.
