Well it has been a while since I have made a pair pf socks for myself so I believe it is about time. Managed to score some lovely Lorna’s Laces Solemate in the color Black Purl and I love it. Although it is hard to see in the pick it has a nice mix of gray, lavender and in some spots a tinge of teal. For the pattern I went with one of Wendy Johnson’s patterns Double Eyelet Rib socks. I love how well written Wendy’s patterns are. Her instructions are right on and thus far I have never hit any pattern errors at all which is much appreciated.
So far I am only at the tip of the toe but after sitting down to knit today I should get a bit further. Gotta love handmade socks as nothing keeps the toes as warm. Take a look!
