Hi! My name is Karen. I guess I'm the first to post my socks. I chose the Rustic Arrow Socks pattern. I'm pretty well pleased with how they turned out, but I do have a couple issues. The 3 pattern repeats (the pattern called for) were definitely not enough (they have a short leg area). If anyone else chooses this pattern, do at least 1 or 2 more repeats. And they are a little loose in the leg area also (yes I did get gauge) and my legs are by no means thin (I am a plus size woman). I used Knit Picks Merino Style in the Cornflower colorway instead of the suggested WoolEase. I'm thinking I may try more of these patterns (since I'm over my initial hesitation of knitting a pattern without a picture). Thanks for a great KAL, this was fun knitting outside the box!


  • Wow, that was quick, and they look great.

  • And here I was waiting until August 15 to start! Your socks look great, love the color!

  • Just thought of a flaw in this KAL. If we make a pattern and then post the picture, it's no longer a mystery, so does that mean that no one else can make that pattern?

  • Holy moly, you're fast!

    And, as museknits pointed out, I think if you've already chosen your pattern it's fine to keep/start knitting it. Just try not to choose one based on any of the pictures you've seen. :) I'm interested in seeing how different the same socks can look with all the different yarn choices!

  • That WAS fast! They look great too. Definitely a successful mystery pair! Good job.

  • Those do look great! And you really are super-fast! I was holding out until the 15th to start, too. :)

    I like the idea of posting the pictures, and think it would also be nice to re-post the pattern as well. They may no longer be mystery socks, but imagine the huge arsenal of new sock patterns for everyone to try out- and be less hesitant about because now they have pictures!

  • It looks like that was a successful experiment. They look great.
