I fell in love with the Regia yarn at a LYS and knew I had to knit with it…but also knew it was a bit much on its own. Fortunately I’d also been wanting an excuse to support fellow Ranger SpiritFox and knit her Drazi socks…they were an excellent match! The little stranded windows on the pattern tone down the Mosaik just enough to make it look semi-adult.
I made a lot of modifications to this pattern, partly so I could knit them toe-up, partly because I was confused by the colorwork on the sole of the original pattern, and partly because, you know, I’m me. Following patterns is not exactly my strong suit. The details can be found on the project page.
Of course I ended up modifying them too much and they ended up too small for Mom so now they are mine. Oops. On the other hand, she’s inherited a pair that wound up too big for me so I guess we’re even? Why am I so bad at making things the right size???
Oh well. Pretty colors hooray?
Am I the only one with chronic sizing issues? How do you deal with knitting socks for other people? Let me know!
