Well this seems as though it could be rather promising. I really do like them both ways, though the inside out version is currently slightly in the lead. I’m actually starting to like the reverse stockinette sole too. Apparently some people make all their socks that way because it makes the inside of the sock particularly smooth.
I think that when I write them up, I’ll just explain how to arrange it so that the regular stockinette side of the sole matches up with either side of the stitch pattern.
In other news, I’m picking up my new car tomorrow morning. After ten years of faithful service, my current car has come to the end of its life. Somewhat to my surprise, I finding it a bit hard to say goodbye. I’m sure this feeling will wear off once I’m in my shiny new car, but at the moment, I’m a bit nostalgic. Alas, the inconvenience of a car payment seems likely to stick around far longer than the blue feeling.
