Bubble Wrap socks finished at last March 9, 2008

I made it my mission last night to finish these off…. and here they are!

Pattern: Bubble Wrap socks by Sockbug (knitted on two circulars)

Yarn: Opal Zircus (not sure of colourway)

It was a very easy pattern to follow and a really easy stitch pattern to memorise. I think the bubble wrap effect goes well with the opal yarn pattern, I was concerned that the stripes would be too much with it but I’m very happy with the finished result. The only change I made was in the way I worked on picking up the gusset stitches, the Sockbug pattern tells you to use a spare needle but I used the Cat Bordhi method of picking up half the stitches and knitting half the foot stitches onto each needle (does that make sense?) Anyway, a great pattern for the two circular method, I will definitely be trying out more Sockbug patterns in the future.

Now I’ve got these done I really must get back to my tunic top in James C Brett Marble, I have done the back and started the front but it got demoted to the bottom of the WIP pile in favour of the socks! I have to admit I am half tempted to cast on some more socks today though… my poor tunic top may never be finished!
