Hello, happy Friday!
I had yet another dentist appointment the other day to have another tooth removed, this time without the help of an oral surgeon this time, so I was awake for it. I’m experiencing the pain I expected from the first tooth I had removed, it’s extremely not fun. I have been keeping myself occupied with knitting though. I participated in another one week sock challenge, it’s my third time challenging myself to the task.
I used some gorgeous Baerenwolle yarn that I won in a giveaway months ago. It took me awhile to land on the right pattern for this yarn, so I didn’t get started on my socks until Saturday. I decided to finally give the Vanilla is the New Black pattern a try, to try a new heel and to let the yarn do the talking.
Earlier this year, I knit a pair of socks with a rolled cuff and really liked them, so I decided to knit this pair with the rolled cuff as well. It’s a cuff I will be knitting often I think.
I had a couple failed attempts when I got to the heel on the first sock, but third time was the charm. I love the construction of this heel, not having to pick up stitches is really great. It also fits really great too, so I will be knitting it again.
I finished within the week again! I really enjoy challenging myself to this every so often, I can’t wait for the next ‘one week sock challenge‘. You can see my socks from the other challenges I did here and here.
Thanks for stopping by today, have a great weekend!
