FO: Socks – Twisted and Herringbone Rib

Two pairs of socks completed as part of my self-challenge to bust some UFOs during August…

His and Hers, or perhaps Hers and His...

Pattern: Herringbone Rib Socks by Kristi Schueler

Yarn: Bonny from The Yarn Yard, colourway Tay

Notes: Never again

Ravelry Project: Tay-lor-made

I was making the Herringbone Rib socks for Mr L – he loved the colour of the yarn and asked for socks. Luckily for me, the Herringbone Rib is not very stretchy. These socks would not go over his ankles.

It was love/hate all the way with these socks. A real chore to knit, but worth it in the end because they do look so very good. All the same, there will not be a second pair. Far Too Slow!

A nice fit for Mama Bear

Pattern: Twisted by Jodie Gordon Lucas

Yarn: The Yarn Yard Toddy

Notes: A degree of frogging was required

Ravelry Project: The Furies

A Tad Too Big

I really wanted these socks for myself — I loved the yarn. As it happens, at my gauge, they were always going to be too long for me by the time the foot pattern was completed. Mr L appears very pleased with them, however. He is certainly a bit of a Toddy fan.

I am not sure that these socks were worth all the effort. They don’t look distinguished enough… and are kind of untidy-looking. I don’t believe I would make them again and I think that perhaps the lovely yarn deserved a better pattern
