Snakes on a Sock KAL

Pattern of Goodness by Miss Lime! This sock was inspired by the Lime & Violet podcast of a similar name and by the fact that after listening to that episode, so many of our listeners had run-ins with snakes actually in their house.

Snakes on a Sock progress




If you haven't had a chance to, you should join socktoberfest at Lolly Knitting Around, then go join the group at

I'm trying to do some promotion of the pattern there, but with the weird net problems recently I'm a little worried people will be turned off when they can't read the blog. Yikes! I'm hoping you're seeing this now! As I told Lime after she emailed me I'm hoping it is a problem with the planned outtage blogger had this weekend!

my snakes!

I used some knitpicks dyeable yarn to create this:

It is self striping, done with some kool-aid. but enough about the yarn!

HERE is the beginning of my snakes on a sock!!!

Thanks to those who helped with the clarifying of the pattern! it was super helpful!

Errata from message board

From Miss Alacariel:
In the pattern, it is written like this:

N1: k11, p2, M1, k1, M1
N2: M1, k1, M1, p2, k11
...and so on.

Those bolded M1s, should be Kfb (or knit in the front and back of each stitch. That's just not mentioned in the pattern and there are so many different ways to M1, that it can be easy to get confused unless it's specified.

From Miss Random Knitter:
The second N4 looks the same as (N4) of Round 4 of Repeat #4, so I ignored while knitting Round 3. Each repeat is similar, so I followed the same format.
Round 3 of Repeat #3 is the same as Round 2.
Round 4 of Repeat #3 is almost the same as Round 1 of Repeat #3, only replace "M1, K1, M1" with "Sl2, k1, psso". I tried this and it looks fine.
