While looking through my Ravelry project list, I am still amazed that I only managed to knit up two pairs of socks in 2014.
The most socks I ever knitted in one year was 12 pairs back in 2008. Wowza! I was a knitting machine back then.
But I digress. Today is all about showing off one of my last FO's of 2014, the Hermione's Everyday Socks.
Pattern: Hermione's Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder (Free pattern)
Yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts Socks that Rock - Rare Gems Colorway
Started: December 4, 2014
Finished: December 28, 2014
Needles: Knit Picks Circs - Size 1.5 (Leg), 1 (Foot)
The socks grew up from this...
The pattern itself was a delight to knit. Very simple, but yet when combined with the right colorway yarn, is full of dimension and texture.
The only thing I wish I had done differently was knit the leg on size 1 needles and the foot on size 0 needles. The smallest size to cast on is 64 stitches and with using my standard needle formula for socks, they turned out a tad big on me. I may also consider taking the stitch count down if I choose to knit them again. In the end it's ok. They will be house socks and I will love them each time I place them upon my feet.
I do have one more FO to share before we get too much further into 2015. Hopefully I will get it on the blog soon!
