I’m a constant sock knitter, as you all know. And yet, I only managed to finish one pair of socks for Socktoberfest.
Pattern: Feather and Fan from Socks Socks Socks
Yarn: A Piece of Vermont Sock Yarn
Dates: 9/21/2006 – 10/26/2006
This is the 4th time I have knit this particular sock pattern and I never get tired of it. I use Magic Loop with Size 1 Addis and only modify the pattern slightly – I don’t do that garter ridge when I transition from the leg to the ankle. Oh, and I make the leg a bit longer than the pattern indicates.
I wore these yesterday and they are wonderful. The blues in the yarn go perfectly with jeans, which is exactly what I wanted. I do feel a bit like a slacker for returning to the same pattern so frequently, but honestly, I love it so much that I can’t help myself. And I have enough rules in my life, I’m certainly not going to impose one on myself about what sock patterns I can and cannot knit!
That said, my current socks are not Feather and Fan. Just saying.
there’s nothing quite so fun as a great pattern for socks.
those are wonderful – and I think that Jessie does a n incredible job with her dyed yarn. I have to get me some of that!
