FO Friday 88


Happy Friday! I hope everyone has great plans this week, especially those who gets to have a LONG weekend as it's a holiday! Happy Memorial Day for those of you in the States! We don't have too much planned as it will be a weekend of relaxation as my husband is coming back into town. He's been traveling a lot for work and will be off again next week. We hope the weather shapes up as we want to go to the beach, but it looks like it might be a tad cold. Keep your fingers crossed for us!

Today I'm super excited to share my second pair of Hermione's Everyday Socks! This first time I made these, you may remember was back in October or November of last year as a Christmas present for my mother in law. I loved the pattern so much, I knew that I'd be making them again for myself. Funny enough, I love them so much still after the second time that I will make this my go to sock knitting pattern when I want an easy, yet pretty sock. They fit perfect and the color is fun (and bright)!



Materials:

Pattern: Hermione's Everyday Socks
Yarn: Candy Skein Yummy fingering in Orange Sherbet
Needles: Knit Picks Harmony US 1 1/2 (2.5mm) w/ a 32" cable
Notes: No notes for me. I followed the pattern including the same number of repeats.

Share your FOs!
