teosinte sock

third in the manlace series.
teosinte is the name of the original plant that botanists think corn comes from—a rugged, low-growing, hardy mexican grass.
i think that pretty much says it all.

  1. Being preoccupied with familystuff during the last week or so, I haven’t been able to catch up on your blog for some time-BUT now it’s done, and you have some beautiful samples there! Looking forward to seeing what you end up with!

  2. These socks are beautiful! When you say it translates easily to top down, can I just take the chart and start knitting? Does easy mean no figuring things out? Thank you!

  3. Another winner! Gorgeous! Thanks, too, to Kim, for continuing and finishing the test sock.

  4. Congratulations with yet another beautiful creation.
    I told some of my knitting friends that you were creating a manlace sock and they were thrilled.

    I love how the pattern is not obscured at all by the subtle variegation.

    Applause to you, Anne!

  5. Hello there. I want to buy your pattern, but am having trouble. Since I do this all the time, I’m puzzled what I could be doing wrong.

    Let me know and I will try again.

    Thanks, Pam

  6. Didn’t realize these were toe-up. But what a great idea when knitting for a large man foot and not having to worry about running out of yarn at the toe!

  7. Another fabulous pattern. Wow. And it looks so good with the handpainted yarn! It’s rare that texture and color agree so well, but you’re clever that way. 🙂

  8. I was watching the progress on these and now I keep coming back to the photo. You’ll see me again, when I am ready to knit them. I have some nice golden brown yarn that I think would be perfect…
