The Game of Charades

As promised, I give you Charade sock number one...







Specs:
Pattern: Charade Socks by Sandra Park
Yarn: Yarn Pirate Superwash Fingering Merino in Rosie gifted to me from Sarah
Needles: Susan Bates Size 1 DPNs
Mods: I just picked up a few more stitches in the gusset...18 instead of 16 and kept those 2 extra on each side when I knit the foot to accomodate for the wideness in my foot. That's it. This pattern ROCKS!

That Sandra is a genius. This is the most fun sock pattern of all time. As she suggested, I rented Charade to watch while I knit sock number 2....le sigh...nothin' better than Audrey Hepburn and Cary Grant together.

And I'm determined not to have SSS (Second Sock Syndrome) on these so here's the proof in the pudding.

those socks are amazing, can't wait to see them as a matching pair, although it is a bit hot for socks right now.
