Bartholomew's Tantalizing Socks

Wow! Posts 3 days in a row! Go Me!!

Another sock to post about tonight. This is yet another pattern from "New Pathways for Sock Knitters". This is the pattern which drew me to the book, and the reason I bought it initially. I've since fallen in love with many of the patterns and will eventually knit them all.

I am using some Collinette Jitterbug yarn I bought sometime last summer, I believe. I'll definitely be using more of this in the future. I really like knitting with it. It's "sproingy" if you know what I mean. It has good stitch definition and the colors are so vibrant.

I am know at the point where I am doing the arch expansion, so this sock should be done in a couple more knitting sessions.

The cuff is made to wear either turned down or not.

I'm thinking I won't turn it down. I kind of like the look of the cuff worn up with the bit of flare it gets from the slit in the back.


  1. In a nice way, they're a bit va-va-voom. I like the split.

  2. Go you!

    I am so impressed that you actually have progress to show us three days in a row. : )

  3. The color is sooo beautiful. Very vibrant. I love it!
