Category Archives: 11 socks in 2011

Another sock…

I’m very excited about finishing my second pair of socks for 2011! However, I’m not counting these officially for my 11 in 2011 as really they were started back in September 2009. That’s right… I just finished a pair of socks that I started a little under 18 months ago. How awesome is that?

Psychedelia - FINISHED

I love how these came out! Of course I’d had the first one done all this time, so I knew I’d love them, but it feels good to get these off the needles and onto my feet.

I knit these using Hazel Knits Artisan Sock. It’s a lovely color (Fireberry) and the yarn is wonderful but a bit cottony feeling. Reminded me a bit of a heavier Wollmeise, actually. I still love the feeling of the socks on my feet, though… just like WM! 🙂

In other knitting news, I’m done with all the prototypes for my hat (thanks for all the lovely comments on the last post!) and it’s currently being test knit. Pattern will be coming out around Valentine’s Day, so be ready for it! Here’s a sneak peek with the pile of Nouveau Bohemia goodness. So yummy!

Sock 1 of 11 in 2011

I finished my first pair of socks for 2011 and am so happy to be right on point with doing 11 pairs in 2011. Just between you and me, though, I’m pretty sure that I will end up with more than 11 pairs when all’s said and done, but I guess we’ll just have to wait and see what happens! 🙂

Hedera Socks - FINISHED

Meet Hedera, the first sock in the Sock.Knit.Love KAL going on over on Ravelry. I had never knit this Cookie A pattern before but I was happy to see it was a very easy and quick knit, taking only two days for each sock.

And the yarn was a dream to work with! I’m actually a little sad that these socks are now my sister’s as it was my only BFL/Nylon blend and being from Fiberphile the color is just gorgeous. Not an easy one to let go of, let me tell you… and somehow I’m seeing a pattern here from my last post. Maybe I need to be a more selfish knitter? Hmmm…
