Next week we will have more than just knitting content. I promise. 🙂
Until then. I have another finished pair of socks! These socks are the In the Garden socks from July 2009 in the Rockin Sock Club from Blue Moon Fiber Arts. They were knit on size 2 needles with the colorway Heirloom. I can honestly say I was not a fan of the top portion of these socks. Despite being on size 2’s they were really tight to knit. The pattern recommended 1s or 0s!
I loved that the pattern taught us how to cable without a cable needled. That wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be. I did miss the going down a needle size for the purl portion of these socks so they are a little bulkier on the top and in the middle than they should be.
I loved the colors of the yarn and they really do fit with the pattern. The socks were a very quick knit since they have a pretty short cuff. This was nice because I was able to knock them out in just a week and a half!
I’m slowly working my way through last years Rockin Sock Club. I did skip the March socks, and I’ve started the September ones. I’m hoping to make a lot of progress on those this weekend!
