Autumn just got a little cozier

Being in a bit of a sock slump as of late meant that it was remarkable that I hunkered down and finished a pair of socks this weekend. What’s even more remarkable to me is that, according to my Ravelry page, I’ve had this pair of socks ongoing since January 2020. Yes, you read that right. I started this pair 17 months ago. This pair of socks was on my needles, in some form or another, longer than the pandemic has lasted thus far.

BUT, some dedicated knitting over the last week means I have a new pair of socks for my feet, and aren’t they PRETTY!

The pattern is Cozy Autumn Socks (RAV LINK) by This Handmade Life, a free pattern on their Ravelry page (and if it’s available off rav, I’m sorry, but a quick google search on my part turned up empty).

I was suckered in to this pattern by the simple lace pattern, creating the look of cables. It was all achieved with yarn overs, K2Tog and SSK – no cabling at all. I’ve had the yarn, Robosheep Yarns Sock in colourway Zombie Face, in my stash since the 2018 Toronto Yarn Hop, and it worked up into lovely socks.

Why on earth it took me so long to get finished, I have no idea. My overall sock-enthusiasm hasn’t been high. Could it be less places for me to take my vanilla socks out to? Could it be the bursting dresser drawer already filled with socks? Who’s to say, really. BUT, I did manage to get the cuff and over 30 rounds of leg finished on a new pair yesterday alone. This time, the pattern was Kate Atherley’s latest design, A Dip in the Road. The subtle garter striping is amazing. Maybe my sock mojo’s back?

    1. I’m AMAZED mine were on my needles for as long as they were! When I saw January 2020 on Ravelry, I thought it was a mistake!

      But, when you get your mojo back, this pattern was very simple to follow!
