I have a pair of finished socks to show you today . . . the first pair of socks I’ve finished since July 2019. Remember how I used to knit a pair of socks/month? Yeah. That doesn’t happen anymore. So, a finished pair of socks calls for a little party!
The pattern is geek socks and the yarn is Knitterly Things Vesper Sock Yarn in the color Falling Water and I knit them for Jessica.
Super fun to knit and, despite how long it took me to finish them, relatively fast, too.
I knit my first ever after thought heel for these socks and, while I can’t say I enjoyed it (picking up those stitches on teeny tiny needles ? not fun) I do really like the way it maintains the striping. I don’t have close ups of it for you, though, because when I gave these to Jessica she immediately put them on and that was that. No more photos.
It’s all good, though, because knitting socks that are instantly loved brings me a lot of joy.
