Two pairs of socks completed as part of my self-challenge to bust some UFOs during August…
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!
Pattern: Twisted by Jodie Gordon Lucas
Yarn: The Yarn Yard Toddy
Notes: A degree of frogging was required
Ravelry Project: The Furies
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
