FO: Potluck Socks


Yay for a finished pair of socks just in time for the weather to come back out of the eighties and hopefully feel a little more like Fall again! I’m calling these the Potluck Socks because I’ve used so many different parts of patterns for them that they’re a little nuts. But, they’re pretty and they fit and they’re all mine so I’m happy. 🙂

When I’m knitting with this stuff there’s none of that “gee my hands are getting dried out from the yarn” feeling. It’s a little splity, which is always annoying, but I’m not complaining too much at this point. I totally had to add stitches to this pattern though, it only wanted me to cast on some insane amount like 42 stitches using size 2 needles and sockweight yarn… uh, no. That probably wouldn’t even fit Devin. But now that I’ve added my stiches and it’s more like a normal sock size, knitting is going along smoothly. 🙂 And speaking of knitting… I’m going to go so some more while I finishing watching the premiere of Boston Legal. 🙂
