I finished these a few days ago and felt like I should get them up on the blog before I hand them off to my friend, Susan. The pattern is Hermione’s Everyday Socks, a free and fairly ubiquitous sock favorite on Ravelry. It’s an easy pattern repeat that works well with variegated sock yarn. The yarn is Pagewood Farms Chugiak in Army Girl. It reminds me of fall apples. I did it toe-up with a heel flap, rather than top-down as the pattern specifies.
These are hasty kid-just-went-down-for-a-nap photos, so you can see the line from the hand knit socks I was wearing all morning above the cuff of these. I’ve got a few other projects hanging out on the needles. One is a secret birthday project, one is Linum Tee (which I can’t seem to make myself want to finish though I am maybe 2 inches from doing so), then I have Simple Skyp socks, a pair of Regia Flourmania socks that I haven’t photographed yet, and a Like Sleeves for Kids. I’m thinking of casting on a Vitamin D any second, because it seems like a great summer to fall transition piece.
