Finally back to the Hermione’s Everyday Socks! This is a free pattern on Ravelry. These are a birthday gift for a family member who is knit worthy :). Her birthday is today so she will not get them on time, but I told her that and she said she was willing to wait for a hand knit item. This will be her first peek at them, thought it only fair since she isn’t getting them today lol.
Wish my photography skills were better, you can’t really see the design for this pattern, tho’ the darker nature of the yarn also hampers that. I am getting ready to start the heel on both socks. I like knitting them together, makes them seem to go faster, you can make sure the leg and foot are the same length, and you don’t end up with second sock syndrome (for my non knitter friends that is when you have finished the first sock and aren’t in the mood to start the second :P.) A friend on Ravelry is going to do a video showing how she does the heel and gusset on the 9 inch circulars (9 inch circs are my preference for knitting socks). I usually change to the double pointed needles for the heel and gusset but if I don’t have to do that, it would be great! When she gets the video up, I will post a link to it. 🙂
