Sock it to me Monday 30

I finished my happy neon socks at last and wore them at the weekend.

These are Hermione’s Every Day Socks (Rav link) using Neon Rainbow sock yarn from Siobhan’s Crafts (I cannot recommend enough).

The first Diagon Ally sock is done and I’m whizzing through the leg of the second one.

And my shortie sock currently looks like this.

But there’s a wee niggle at the back of my mind telling me to frog it all. I’m not sure why, but I’m just not that happy with it. I’ll give it a few days in the naughty corner and see how I feel after that.

What do you guys think, Blogville?

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.
