Knitting: more Hermione socks.
These socks took so much longer than they should have! They're basically all I've been knitting for the past couple of months...obviously I haven't been knitting much. I also got second sock syndrome with these. I'm so excited about knitting the new sock yarn that I bought at the fiber festival that I had to push through the second one.
They are Hermione's Everyday Socks, which is one of my favorite sock patterns. I think this is my fourth pair? The pattern is so simple, just a bit of texture, but my favorite part is the heel. I love how the garter edge makes the picked up stitches look so neat. I was finished with the first sock before I realized how the colors in this yarn are very similar to these socks, except much more muted and subtle.
This yarn is from the Unwind Yarn Company, in the Abalone colorway. It was a nice, twisty sock yarn that I'm sure will hold up well. (Monica was kind enough to send it to me!)
