Hermione's Everyday Socks. I was pretty sure I was the last sock knitting knitter to make a pair of these, but from the comments, I see there are a few of you who also have put these off. Why??!!? This is one great pattern....just a few purls thrown in to keep the socks from pooling badly---or, at the very least, to give pooled areas a bit of interest and texture. It has a modified eye of partridge heel...again, simple, but a wee bit of additional interest. A well written pattern. And it's free. I used size 1 needles on the leg of the sock, then went down to a 0 for the heel and gusset and foot. These are probably the best fitting socks I've ever made (and I've made a whole lot of socks!!!!) My vanilla sock pattern has found some competition. This won't be the last pair I knit.
Another featherweight jumped on the needles...just because it's a pretty straight-forward knit and I have a couple books I want to dive into...and this yarn has been in the stash too long. (I wonder why.....it's actually a bit more teal than the color in the photo!)
And soon to be on the needles...No show socks by La Maison Rililie.
Let the holiday knitting begin!!!
The knitting pace is picking up. Fall must be in the air!
