So last week I introduced some of the mountain of sock I have on my needles.
Today I am pleased to announce I’ve made headway into clearing the backlog!
We have an FO!! (Finished Object)
I’ve finished my Squirrel Socks! My first pair of finished socks in months and I couldn’t be happier with them! I’m even considering knitting a lot more socks of 2mm needles, I really like the density and finish of the final fabric. I’ve been a 2.25mm girl for a long time but these might have converted me just a little!
For those of you in the dark, I’ve named these squirrel socks (not because I have attached a large fluffy tail to the heel) because of the yarn name… Earlier in the year one of my favourite dyers Riverknits the amazing floating dye studio, released a colour way passed on the Giant Indian Red Squirrel… It has fast become one of my favourite colour ways. I also used new needles too… Addi Sock wonder needles. They are the best mini needles I’ve found, especially for use with my slightly larger hands. Great needles these socks flew by! I’ll definitely be using them again soon.
These are going to be an autumnal pregnancy staple with leather boots I can feel it already!
Thank you for sharing in my FO happiness, I’ll write again soon and hopefully have more to share!
P.S. I used a really simple basic pattern for these socks they weren’t hard to make at all, for more information you can find stitch counts on my Ravelry project page.
