FO: Tribute Socks

These socks were a little late coming to fruition. I fell for them as soon as they came out in Knitty, and cast them on without delay. The first sock went well. I am not sure why they went into hibernation after that.

Second place

Knitted in Caber, a bamboo blend from The Yarn Yard. These are such pretty socks that I entered them into this year’s Industrial Show. They took a Second in the “item from 100 grams” class. Pipped by a  baby cardigan, made by the highly talented N.

Finished socks

Really nice socks. They are far quicker and much easier than you might think from their intricate appearance – even if you have to frog half a foot, as I did when I realised that I had forgotten the error in the pattern. The foot begins on R13 of the chart, not on row 1 as stated. This I knew when I made the first sock. Don’t ask me how or why I had forgotten it by the time that I made sock #2.


At least they match now, so the frogging was worth it.

Week five of lockdown v2.0 begins today. We have new rules, slightly more relaxed but with the addition of a nightly curfew (from 15th December.) Does that then make this Lockdown v2.1? I think that it probably does! … Continue readingDeterminedly Cheering Myself Up
