The Djinni's Out of the Bottle

I completed my Dragonfly Fibers Mystery sock KAL last night!  I love the look of this finished sock.  This pattern was divided up into 6 clues.  Let's take a closer look at them...
Clue 1 - The cuff is a pretty cabled rib.
Clue 2 - The Leg is a ribbed cable with wrapped stitches.  Very cool look!
Clue 3 - The Heel Flap is a patterned heel flap that is a continuation of the leg pattern.  Very sexy heel.
Clue 4 - Cristi's signature double gusset on the bottom of the foot which led into Clue 5 which is an eyelet foot/instep.
Clue 6 - a patterned round toe.
Personally I am not a big fan of the round toe on a sock.  It's not my best skill.  I have a hard time pulling it tight enough so that it doesn't open up while I'm wearing it.  I thought hard about changing the toe to my personal favorite wedge toe with kitchener stitch finishing, but decided to suck it up and give it the college try one more time.  You can see that I pulled that sucker as tight as i could until I worried the yarn might break, then I tried tacking it a couple extra times.  I have my fingers crossed that it will hold.

  1. wow! That's really pretty. And of course, it's in blue. I don't have a single skein of Djinni Sock yarn! It's the same as Skinny Bugga, right?
