I finished the Hedera socks today. It would have been sooner, however, I couldn’t find my darning needles for a few days and it’s very hard to Kitchener stitch a toe without a darning needle.
So, here they are in all their glory!
Yarn: Dream in Color Smooshy (Giant Peach)
Needles: US 1.5 (2.5mm) dpn’s – I knit these on 4 dpns, despite the fact that the pattern had directions for using only one needle. It didn’t seem to make much difference.
Mods: I made the heel flap shorter than the pattern called for as it was looking a little too long for my taste. I only did 30 rows before I turned the heel.
I really, really like this yarn. It lived up to it’s name and was incredibly smooshy. Super yummy.
And, over the last week, since I was still missing a ball of blue yarn, I whipped up some coffee cup cozies…
Yarns: (clockwise from top) Brownsheep Shepherds Shades (Steel), Arucania Atcama, Patons Soy Wool Stripes (Natural Blue & Natural Pink)
These still need to be sewn and felted. No promises that this will happen before the end of the weekend.
And, I managed to cast on for another of the Cat Bordhi socks (Ravelry Link) from her New Pathways for Sock Knitters book. Remember I said I would review all of these when the book came out? Well, I am still planning to, but it might take me a few years to do it. Stick around; it could be fun.
