Hello! After my week of wearing my knit socks last month, I definitely got my sock knitting mojo back. Soon after, I started knitting a pair.
It’s the Pebbles sock pattern by Mina Philipp and I used Yarn Ink for the first time. It’s a yarn I will be buying again, it was so great to knit with and it comes in a very generous skein, 463 yards. I followed the patttern by only knitting on the front of the sock, it’s a nice look. I knit my favorite rolled cuff and did a plain heel flap, it was my first time doing that and I really like the way it looks, so I’ll probably do it again.
I cast on for another pair of socks the same day I finished the last. I’m using Knit Picks yarns, Felici in the rainbow colorway and Stroll Tonal in the Pearlescent colorway. For the pattern, I’ve mixed the Jelly Roll with the Rose City Rollers pattern. I have been wanting to knit a pair like this for quite awhile now, so they feel like they are flying off the needles!
I’m pretty sure I will have a lot of yarn left, so I want to knit a matching pair for my oldest. They are socks that she would like and I have never knit her socks before, so I think it would be a nice surprise for her.
Having socks on the go again has been really comforting, I feel like a cloud has lifted from over me. Ugh, how dramatic sounding! But, it’s how I feel.
