Yesterday I showed you my newly blocked, Big Woods Flax. I wanted to post about it first because it was important to show how blocking is essential for fresh-off-the-needles FO’s and well, technically, I had talked about it first during my STITCHES West post. I needed to wrap it up. The same day my Coconut took photos of me in the sweater (since honestly, I had make-up on and did my hair), I wore it when she took pictures of my new pair of socks. Check out the slideshow:
Oh my Wheezy, I love, love my (cue Hagrid) Yer a wizard, Harry socks! The colors make me smile. Scenes from the first movie flash through my mind. The magic is alive. I swear I want to buy all of Nomadic Yarns’ Harry Potter inspired sock yarn now.
The fit of these vanilla socks is perfect for my feet. The slipped stitch heel really gives enough room for my high instep. (Note: I have bought the Fish Lips Kiss heel pattern, but honestly, I’m dubious about its fit as the afterthought heel is short in fit around my heels.) Because I had knitted contrast cuffs, heels, and toes, I had 10 ends to weave in in each sock, but of course it was worth it.
Okay, the FO bus has come and gone. It will be a while til the next one. You know I’m working on She Who Breathes + I have a fairly new WIP that needs more attention and have recaked up yarn that is awaiting its cast on.
Thank you very much for visiting my little space here. I look forward to hearing from you. TTYS.
