[knitting] Lissajous Figures Socks

My first finished objects of 2019:

Lissajous Figures Socks

Pattern is Lissajous Figures Socks. I didn't understand the relevance of the name until I googled a little bit about Lissajous curves. Then it clicked.

I struggled with the pattern a bit at the beginning but I really grew to love the movement of the twisted stitches. The pattern is the same on the front and back- magic loop would be the best knitting method but I used two circulars to evenly divide the stitches.

The pattern is well written with lots of helpful pictures. Lots of details- I especially like the heel flaps:

I simplified the sole of the foot to make it plain stockinette, rather than how it was written.

We're just getting into a cold snap here and I was able to enjoy the socks last night in bed:

First finished project of the year. Just in time for the cold snap. #knitting #sockknitting #lissajousfigures #bedsocks #fiberstashdyeworks

The yarn is Strong Toes by VT dyer Fiber Stash Dyeworks. I picked up this skein in Tardis Blue at last fall's Vermont Sheep and Wool Festival. I have a couple more skeins of this yarn wound and ready to go for the next project- I just need to settle on a pattern.
