The Coriolis Effect
I finished my Coriolis socks (from New Pathways for Sock Knitters, Book One) a little while ago, and have worn them a couple of times, too. I guess it's about time I blogged about them.
Per the pattern, I made these lovely Whirlpool toes:
I think I still want to do a pair where the toes whirl in opposite directions, but we'll see. Could be too dizzying for me, what with the Coriolis effect, and all.
The colors in the yarn don't display the spiral effect to full advantage, but these socks fit very well and are very wearable -- I expect to get a lot of use out of these.
I didn't use any of the very fancy sock bind-offs that Cat Bordhi had in her book, opting instead for a basic 2x2 rib and EZ's sewn bind-off. The spiral does turn into one of the ribs, but unfortunately I don't have a pic of that.
Lisa was done with this yarn and gave it to me while I was in Minneapolis in August. Thanks for the yarn, Lisa!
