Hi everyone! Happy Black Friday! I'm actually writing this on Wednesday night, so I need to keep this short. I still have a pie in the oven, stuffing to make and I need to pack and it's already 9:45. Down to the wire, that's the way I like it! ;)
I can't explain to you how happy I am to have finish this project. It's not because I don't LOVE LOVE the socks and the yarn. I really did, and I can't wait to make these socks for myself. It's because I just have SO much Christmas knitting on my plate that I need to pick up my speed.
Yarn: Candy Skein Yummy fingering in Royal Rock Candy
Needles: US Size 2
Pattern: Hermione's Everyday Socks
Changes: I didn't change anything, except that I did only 10 repeats of the pattern on the leg, instead of the 18 the pattern calls for.
I hope these fit my mother in law! If not, I have someone else I can give them to, but that means I'll need to crank out another pair if they don't. They're a little small on me (I wear a size 9). Anyway, as I said, I LOVE this pattern. It's so easy to memorize, yet it doesn't get too boring. It's a simple four row repeat and I LOVE the heel. It's Eye of the Partridge but with a garter stitch edge which I had never seen before this pattern. I'd highly recommend it!
