My Charybdis socks have finally been knit up. It took me four months, which is pretty long for me and socks. I guess my heart wasn’t in it with these.
The pattern is pretty nice. It’s a simple angled ridge that wraps around the leg. The socks are mirror images of each other as well, so when worn, they have slope away from each other.
I used Fleece Artist Somoko in Nyoni, which I got for a Christmas gift.
I can’t tell if I knit the foot a little too long; I have to wear them around, but as it’s summer, it’ll have to wait until it cools off a bit. If I knit them up a little too long, they’ll become lounge socks.
Here’s a closeup shot of the angled ridge. Overall I like how the socks turned out.
