I finished the blue sock last night. I do like knitting this pattern. And that's a pretty good picture of the double wrap short row heel.
The sock on the left has been washed and the pattern still stands out nicely. This wool is knitting up to exactly 7 sts per inch. Is this a little heavy for a woman's sock?

I also started a man's version. It will not have holes in the boxes but I'm thinking of little knots on the leg portion. I want to name the man sock 'checkmate' but I don't know what to call the original sock. Any chess players out there?

  1. Mmmmmmmmm.... the blue socks are gorgeous! I love the pattern and the colour. There are knights bishops queen rooks and pawns in chess. Not sure that helps. :O) samm
