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!

I know what you mean about having too much Christmas knitting to do....and I just checked the postal deadlines for sending stuff from the UK to the USA. Yikes, I need to get busy! Your socks are beautiful, and the heal does look great!ReplyDelete
They look great :) I'm trying to get through my Christmas knitting too, and it seems to be getting ever closer!ReplyDelete
Really beautiful socks, and I love the color of the yarn so much!ReplyDelete

I really like the socks, I may have to check out this pattern.ReplyDelete
I love the socks! And the Candy Skein Royal Rock Candy, too, as I've mentioned. I tend to a be down to the wire cook myself, so I completely understand. I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!ReplyDelete
Love them, but I love socks anyway!!! The color really is pretty!ReplyDelete
Love those socks - such beautiful color!!ReplyDelete
The socks are gorgeous! I love the color and that pattern is so much fun to knit.ReplyDelete
I love your socks too. The colour, the stitch pattern, and the overall look work wonderfully together.ReplyDelete
They look beautiful now they are finished, but with that yarn it would be difficult not to!ReplyDelete
Tami - I am sure the socks will fit your mother in law. All your efforts will not go waste. It looks so lovely and the color is mild. Happy weekendReplyDelete
Yay, socks! They look fantastic. Nice job. Hope you guys are having a great weekend!ReplyDelete
Gor-geous! Hope your weekend is a great one! "See you" Wednesday xReplyDelete
Your socks look great, fingers crossed that they fit :)ReplyDelete
I'm a little late to the party, but here I am.ReplyDelete
Love the socks. Hope they fit your MIL. I'm not doing any giftmas knitting this year. Just no time for it.
Hope you had a good Thanksgiving.
These socks have been in my queue for awhile...and I'm thinking they might be one of my next pairs of socks. I tend to have two or three pairs going at once and I'm almost finished with my basic socks (second sock is on the foot), I'm halfway through my Skyp socks (need to start the second), and my baby socks can suffer for awhile...ReplyDelete
