FO: Nasturtium

As you guys have probably noticed, I've knit a lot of socks.  Not so much that I would consider myself to be primarily a sock knitter, but enough that I have established what construction I like and am comfortable plugging a stitch pattern into it.  Yet my favorite pair of socks has consistently been the second pair I ever knit (my first pair went to live with my aunt).  Knit in Knit Picks Imagination, these basic toe-up anklets have stood up to years of wear, possibly because of the alpaca content.  So recently I decided to try to duplicate my success.  I bought more Imagination and found an actual pattern because you know I could not make it through another pair of stockinette socks.

Kristen Kapur's Nasturtium is a killer pattern.  This is an easy to memorize chevron pattern knit top-down with an eye of partridge heel.  It was absolutely perfect for all the time I spent in cars and on airplanes last week and a very fast knit.

And the Knit Picks Imagination is just as lovely as I remember.  I bought two skeins of Fairy Princess, but I actually only used one, with mere yards left over.  The colors are bright and vibrant and the alpaca is soft and comforting.  Paired with the pattern it is such a lovely result.

For more FOs, probably not photographed on yet another stormy evening in North Carolina, check out the gang over at Tami's Amis!


  1. Lovely colors in that yarn. I love the waves it creates down the sock.

  2. Cute socks... the pattern looks kinda Jaywalker-y which yielded some really nice fitting socks for me too. And it's so great with a subtle self-striping yarn. Nice!

  3. I love KP Imagination, haven't used it to make socks yet. And now I've got this pattern faved!

  4. Interesting how the color has pooled :)
