Oh so much news for my tenth socky post! I’d like to say I planned it so there was something interesting to say just in time for double digits, but that would be a blatant lie. Everyone knows I’m too disorganised for that.
The first news: I finished my first ever pair of socks AND THEY FIT!!
I keep trying them on because part of my brain can’t quite believe that it worked.
These are made with Mothy and the Squid yarn in the colourway Peacock Flower. The pattern is Basic Sock with Integrated Heel on Ravelry and I used 2mm DPNs to make the largest size for my hobbit feet.
I can’t even tell you how happy I am with these socks. If I were not so scared of causing holes I’d never take them off.
But I am a sock knitter now and can’t bear to have empty needles for long, so the second news:
I cast on for the boyfriend’s socks and already made it to the foot.
It’s going soooo much faster than mine, thanks to the sensible amount of ribbing (15 rounds, thanks for all the advice!) and a slightly shorter leg. Also the fact that I haven’t yet messed it up. Win.
It’s official – I love knitting socks!
