I’ve started a pair of the ubiquitous Hermione’s Everyday Socks. It’s a free pattern on Ravelry and the repeats are autopilot enough to work on during meetings at work, or possibly during a movie in the theater. That’s an important part of choosing a sock pattern for me. I have to have at least one small project that takes very little of my attention so it’s unobtrusive enough for me to work on it when I have to put the majority of my focus elsewhere, yet I want to keep my hands busy. This pattern is extremely simple, but makes a nice texture. The yarn is Pagewood Farms Chugiak in Army Girl. There is some odd pooling that looks a bit like tiger stripes, but I’m just going to go with it. The yarn is nice, but has a ton of twist in it. I suppose that might help the socks last longer in a 100% merino yarn, but it’s occasionally annoying while knitting. I’m altering these to go toe-up, and I’ll do my usual heel flap.
I am super excited to be on Ravelry’s front page for my Kit Camisole the past couple of days!
My Waterlily is on the blocking board! I finally had some quiet time to sit down and think about the kitchener and neck. Pictures soon.
