FO: Squishville Socks
Finished a pair of socks in the lunchroom at work, a design I hope to get test knitters for (I have two!), and sell on Ravelry.
Pattern: My design, Squishville socks
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts medium weight, Trendsetter Super Kid Seta laceweight
Duration: 14th August to 14th September
Ravelry project: Squishville Socks
These are done in sportweight yarn with a mohair carry-along for the heel and soles that feels silky when you wear them. I wanted a pair of socks you could pull on after a long hard day, sigh, and feel better. I love hemmed tops on socks.
In order to start my next project, the Toasty Cardigan, I had to finish not only Eris, but these socks, as both projects had my one and only needle of the size I needed, a US6 from Eris and a US3 from the socks. It kept me honest, I couldn't even swatch until Eris was done. And in a shocking turn of events, I got gauge first time using the needle suggested by the pattern. This has never happened before. Stitch gauge, and almost row gauge too.
