I made another pair of socks! This week I went with another free sock pattern I found on Ravelry called the Blueberry Waffle Socks by Sandy Turner. I got this gorgeous skein of Natur 100% superwash wool yarn at a knitting shop in Nuremberg, Germany.
It is crazy how easy making socks can be and once you have done it once you can easily adjust the pattern. I know that I like how the foot fits on the Hermione’s Everyday sock and I didn’t like how the foot fit on the Business Casual socks, so when I saw that the heel and gusset were written similar to the Business Casual socks, I just used the instructions from the Hermione’s Everyday sock and it worked out great.
I thought I was ready to graft the toes together with a Kitchener stitch without rewatching the how-to video, but after I was done I realized I had somehow messed it up….and I tried to undo it but it was impossible so it will remain as a reminder. For the second sock, I watched the video and it turned out correct. I checked out some sock books from the library and want to experiment with some toe-up socks on double needles next time I make socks, but I am going to move on to some other projects for a while.
Have a lovely week,
