These are the Snap Dragon socks - a pattern from Wendy & knitted in the same yarn & color - Dream In Color Smooshy sock yarn in Cool Fire colorway BUT it's not a pair! Look at them carefully - the one on top is smaller!
This is what happened - I started knitting this sock in the medium size & the sock is for my dear friend, Helen. But after casting off the 1st sock, I thought that it look a little small especially the heel & so got Helen to try it on & she could not get the sock over the heel! I have knitted socks for Helen before & they were alright & now this happened! I think the lace pattern does not provide much stretch.
So I cast on another sock in the large size & again got Helen to try it on & THANK GOODNESS - it FITTED! Now I have to rip off the 1st sock & cast on for the 2nd sock in the RIGHT SIZE!
Anyway, this pattern is really nice & easy to remember & with the gorgeous & soft yarn makes the knitting a pleasure - I don't mind knitting the 3rd sock!
