Sneakerliner baffies

I decided to knit the stripped version of the seven skeins club house socks. I wanted to be able to wear them in sneakers, because I love the way they don't fall down at the ankle and the clever heel construction. I had to make a couple of changes to the pattern, but I think they keep the spirit of the original.

I cast on in left over sock weight yarn, using 64 stitches and 2.25 mm needles. I knit the toes and the foot as the pattern suggested, and then did the heel in stocking stitch. I knit two together at the centre point of the heel for a few row, to try to reduce the pointy heel situation



Generally I am very happy with them. It is a fun, simple way to make sneaker liners, and I was excited to make two patterns for the first week of the Seven Skeins Club. I am very much looking forward to what comes next in this adventure.
