Pattern: Hermione’s Everyday Sock
Yarn: Regia 4-fädig, colour 05395 blau-weiß color, custom dyed to be Ravenclaw blue and grey.
Heel: The dreaded ‘Afterthought’
I think I unsuccessfully attempted to write last week’s post many times over, starting in one direction, trying something else. Ultimately, I was blog-silent last week, and that’s okay because it meant I had more time for knitting. Much like in my last post, I’m still knitting furiously trying to finish what I need to for the holidays.
I did get those socks for my Grandma finished, and I love them.
They were so simple: mostly plain vanilla, letting the variegation in the yarn shine, but the cable running along the side of the foot adds enough interest to break up the monotony that vanilla socks can pose. There were a few times when I forgot to cable on the cable row, so I was able to practice the skill of dropping stitches, cabling, then picking them back up.
I’m thinking of writing up the pattern and adding it to the Ravelry database, but I’ve never done that before. I’d also be very tempted to add a modest price for the pattern, but I don’t know if they are interesting enough to justify the cost, and those sound like even more hoops to jump through. If anyone has any experience with that, please leave comments! I’d love to hear more about the process and how you found it!
Wishing you well in the two weeks before Christmas, and hopefully your holiday knitting is coming along well!
