Sock Pattern: Vote!
Now that I've used up my delicious Mirasol Sulka, I'm onto my Hacho. I've decided to knit socks, and as you sock knitters out there already know, there is an absolute glut of patterns available. According to Ravelry, there are 3,382 sock patterns in it's pattern browser. That's some serious sock variety. I wanted something that had no lace (I get chilly feet- I want them covered up!), was fairly simple, and could be done without constantly looking at a chart or counting stitches every second. I wanted blank-out-and-knit socks. But pretty blank-out-and-knit socks. To that end, I narrowed it down to three patterns to swatch up: That's Jules Charade and Crusoe I'm partial to Jules, but only because I seem to be having a five-year-old response to the name of the pattern: 'Hey! Those socks have the same name as me! I want them!' I can't say that I feel really strongly about any of them. but I refuse to swatch any other patterns, and these meet my criteria of simple (but not plain) socks. So tell me: which one do you think I should make? Leave comment, and the pattern with the most votes will be chosen!
