Happy Friday, knitting peeps! As previously discussed, I have *finally* finished my beloved Hedgerow Socks. Yay! We have quite a history together, me and these socks.
First, I tried them in some pretty charcoal grey yarn. It looked nice, but I convinced myself that I'd done something horribly wrong. And no matter how much I stared at the sock or the pattern, I couldn't see what the problem was.
This was largely because there was no problem with the socks, only one with my little pea brain. (As an aside... I'm amazed at how often I do this to myself!) Unfortunately, I didn't figure that out until long after I'd frogged my poor little sock.
After several months of hibernation, I dove in again (Did I mention that I really like this pattern?) with some bright red Knit Picks Stroll tonal that I'd gotten as a gift. This time, things went off without a hitch.
I knit the pattern as written, except that I grafted the toe instead of the prescribed round toe. They just seem to fit me better and I don't mind the whole kitchener business. I LOVE these socks. They're cute and comfy and even a little bit Christmasy.
What more can you ask for? How 'bout lots of other fabulous FOs from oodles of talented crafters, and even more fibery goodness? Lucky you, you can have both!
Have a great weekend, too!
