mosaic sock

One mosaic sock finished and shown with a bad photo. Coulours are really quite intense and deep. However, it was late afternoon when I took the photo and I seem to have also taken it on a funny angle. The sock has 2x2 rib across teh top of the foot and it's hard to see that here. Purple should be really deep, roay purple. Unfortunately, the pattern on the sock has also been scrunched up a bit. That's not there in real life.

The mosaic from More Sensational Knitted Socks was easy to do. 28 rows in the pattern but only 14 needed counting. the others were repeats of the row before.

It was fairly quickly done, made quicker by my sitting with my foot up all day yesterday and doing nothing but knitting. I was babysitting on Friday and Saturday at Woy Woy. Just before DIL was due home, we started tidying up. I turned and put my bare foot down, right on the solid grader blade of Master Two's handcrafted wooden tractor. Ouch and a lot more too. I stumbled and there was absolutely nothing to grab so I fell full length on the loungeroom floor. Lots of bruises and a very sore foot, bruised underneath on the ball of the foot.
