Not a True Periscope….

April 17, 2015

…Do they make periscopes vented?

How do I explain it? The sock has become a periscope. However, it is not a true periscope. The eyelets  keep the sock from forming a true looking periscope, as do the knit stitches. It wouldn’t hold water or block it out. But it is the shape of a periscope. Though the eyelets may  be uneven, they are assisting their purpose.


Making the periscope shape

The sock will be two-toned, as well as vented. I have considered switching entirely to the cream color of yarn for the foot, but have decided against it. My reasoning is simply more than one shoe style. While I like these work shoes, and will likely buy them again, I have to consider that I am a woman, and I may consider an open foot style of shoe if I can find the same or a similar comfort level of shoes.

Therefore, the top of the foot of the sock must remain black. The eyelets will continue, the sock will remain vented.  However, as I knit the periscope into a sock-footed shape, I have time to think. I have considered keeping the hearts going along the sock, but that poses a couple of small problems.

The first small problem is that I prefer to knit a section of hearts in one setting. With the eyelets and two-tones, this takes a bit more time. I still have to get studying in at this time. In addition, The knit and purl technique I’m using, while feasible, is  not easily followed for a lace chart. Though I have to admit, I may finally figure out how to correctly follow a lace chart if I were to try this.


Scamp, pretending she doesn’t care about the knitting

For now, I will knit my vented two-toned socks simply, while the kitties slumber nearby, pretending not to be that interested in my knitting…I’m not certain I should believe their disinterest. We shall see how long it lasts. Scamp is growing up, but some days she still has plenty of mischievous kitten within.
