Mystery sock #1 complete and....

I hate it. The pattern looks like the eighties to me. I don't know if it's the geometric feel of it, or the poofiness, or what. But I don't get it. It has no cohesiveness to me. And I made the foot too small. And the ribbed shaping on the sole comes to late to be arch shaping. I don't know... I'm so disappointed, I don't think I'll make the second one. Maybe I'll search around for another pattern. Or maybe I'll just do the Aran braid. Not much of a mystery anymore, but I love how everyone's have turned out.


Pattern: Obstacle sock (pattern off the knitlist)
Yarn: Sundara sport merino, in "Denim" (love the yarn, btw)
Needles: inox dpns, US 1/2


  • What a weird and frustrating pattern. I'm sorry it didn't turn out very well. :(

  • It looks kind of ok from a distance, the lace looks kind of like leaves. Those ribs on the foot are weird! I guess there is a reason some of these have languished in obscurity!

  • Well, maybe it just lives up to its name. It is the "Obstacle Sock" But, I think you have done a great job with it and even though the design truly is different, it looks nice on your foot. Will you be making the second one?
