Here is my version of the Solstice Slip from the Rockin' Sock Club. I did them top down, starting with the slip stitch pattern. I just could not get into the rhythm of the stitch, which may be just where my head is at this time, so I switched to a k3,p2 ribbing on the rest of the leg and the instep. I kept the garter stitch short row heel and toe, and this was my first attempt at kitchener stitch. I didn't have any problems with it except it seemed to get little bumps at either end. There must be a way to do the stitch without getting those, unless it's partly because of the garter stitch.The particulars:
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock lightweight in colorway "Firebird."
Pattern: The Solstice Slip from the Rockin' Sock Club
Needles: Susan Bates Quicksilver #1 double points
Comments: BMFA makes some of the most beautifully dyed yarn in the world and it is great to work with and even better to wear. Next time I would make these in a more solid colored yarn and do them from the toe up, just for fun!
