Happy Friday and happy Veteran's Day/Remembrance Day to all who celebrate. I also wanted to thank all the men and women who have served their countries. Oh yes, and today is 11-11-11, so that's pretty darn cool! :)
Today I actually have a FO, as I mentioned on Wednesday, but it is a bit of a cheat. It's one sock of the pair, but I'm happy to have something finished. It's Hermione's Everyday Socks, which is a free pattern on Ravelry. It's a great one, and I plan to make a pair for myself soon (after Christmas).
Lissa asked on Wednesday about the heel flap of the pattern in the comments section. It's Eye of the Partridge which I think may be a little thinner feeling than the slip stitch heel, but seems as durable. It's a little more feminine than the slip stitch heel in my opinion. I have a pair of socks that is slip stitch heel, and the other is Eye of the Partridge and they are both holding up great. This pattern has a slight mod to the normal Eye of the Partridge, where it doesn't slip the first stitch but is a garter stitch edge. I wasn't sure I'd like this, but in the end, I LOVE it. Picking up the garter stitches was so clean and easy, leaving no holes ANYWHERE and it looks great. I'd highly recommend it. I might actually try it out for other patterns I do.
Since I'm still working on the second sock, that's all I'm going to say about it now, since there will be another FO featuring these socks (hopefully next Friday).
Have a great weekend everyone!
