Sock it to me…
Miracle of miracles, I’ve actually completed some items on my WIP list! (See previous post here)
Firstly I finally managed to finish off the Hardknott Socks for myself, and I love them. This is such a great pattern as its pretty straight forward and the pattern repeats make it go pretty fast (when you’re actually working on it).
It’s a toe-up pattern which I prefer anyway as I find you get a much neater gusset and heel.
Secondly, another pair of socks, my so-called Spain Socks. There was an epic TWO YEAR gap between each sock. I used another pattern I’d knit before, and just replaced the lace panels with seed stitch as I thought it would show off the gradiated yarn, but my god they were boring to knit, so I had a severe bout of second-sock-syndrome after I finished the first.
In the last few weeks, I not only finished the Hardknott socks, but also started and finished another pair of socks in the space of two weeks, so I kept up my momentum and figured I’d finish the bloody things once and for all, rather than have them sitting in my basket for the next year or so!
Not sure which one I’m going to tackle next, they’re all larger projects than the socks, so they’re a little more daunting, but we’ll see, would be nice to get at least half of these off my list before the year is out!
