Sock it to me Monday 21

I was knitting away on the boyfriend’s socks when I realised there was a little sock circular sitting around with nothing on it.  A little while later I was browsing my stash on Excel and noticed that I’d never actually used my Neon Rainbow yarn from Siobhan’s Crafts. You can guess what happened next.


This is the start of some Hermione’s Everyday Socks (Ravelry link) for myself.  I must say, so far I’m not convinced with this pattern – it seems a lot of faff for just a little pretty. But maybe that’s just because I don’t like having to switch between knit and purl stitches. I’m going to carry on and just trust that in the end it will be worth it.

The boyfriend’s socks are plodding along and I’ve almost finished the first one.


With two pairs now on the go at the same time, I think I can officially call myself a sock knitter.

  1. I am so amazed by people who make socks – that truly seems like some impossible magic too me! Let me conquer the granny square and then maybe I can try to make a sock (yup, I would just me making one sock, ha!)

      1. Absolutely! I wondered if I didn’t love mine because it was variegated yarn, and it would look better in a solid? Except I just didn’t love knitting them either. Live and learn, I guess!
