My first knitted Christmas present is officially complete!
To review the basics, these are knit from the Vivace Socks pattern. I used 2.75mm dpns and Knit Picks Felici Fingering in the “Marine Life” colorway. My gauge came in at 8.5 sts x 11.5 rows = 1 inch in stockinette. I knit these to fit a women’s size 8 shoe (9.75 inch foot).
I knit these exactly as written in the pattern except for picking up a couple extra gusset stitches. I love this pattern because it’s super simple. I’ll have to ask my Mother-in-Law if they stay up on her ankles after I give them to her. I’m curious to know whether the picot hem is as functional as it is pretty.
I am so relieved to be able to tuck these away. I hate having to rush to either buy or knit Christmas presents. I still have quite a few to make, but every completed project helps.
