Finally, an FO around here – it’s been ages! It’s not like I’m not knitting, I’m just not really getting anywhere these days, it seems…
Anyhoo. These are my first pair of Socks that Rock, despite my ownership of several (cough) skeins. Colourway Farmhouse, 64 stitches on Knitpicks US 0 circs, magic loop. Short row heel, wedge toe. Plain ol’ sock.
It was good company on the vacation, nice plain round and round. Didn’t get done until just last week, but whatever. I tried to make the socks long, long enough that I would’ve had to add calf shaping if I’d made them any longer, but I still have tons of yarn left over! Probably 20 grams or more (my scale is currently living at the store).
And, they even match! It’s been my experience when knitting a pair of socks from a hand-dyed, 100 g skein, that the two socks never really come out the same. One will stripe up all nice, the other will do weird pooling or something, despite the same gauge, knitter, and yarn. This skeins seems to have been very well behaved however, and the socks really do match – as much as hand-dyed sock yarn-socks can.
Done a new pair of socks just in time for a heat wave. Yipee!
