Knitting: {long overdue} fall socks.


I started these socks three months ago, around the beginning of October. While I finished the first sock that month, they got set aside during the flurry of craft fair knitting and then Christmas knitting that happened over the past few months. Now they're finally finished...technically my first finished project of the new year. :)

This is my third pair of Hermione's Everyday Socks, which is a lovely pattern. It's so simple but results in a nice texture and can sometimes even break up pooling in a subtle way (seen here). I love this yarn...it's sock yarn from Spun Right Round in the colorway Hay Day. I love how speckled it is, and the colors really remind me of fall. These photos are a bit washed out, because the background color is more tan/gray than white. Her Merino and nylon sock yarn is high twist, which I like. It makes the socks feel sturdier.

  3. I love them! So happy! I just bought a new pair of loafers specifically to go with my hand knit socks...I am eager for them to arrive so I can see how it works out.

    1. Thanks! I hope your new shoes work out for you. :) I haven't yet found a way to show off my socks while still wearing shoes.
