Hooray, I finished a pair of socks for the first time in ages! This is only my second finished pair for the year, which is not typical for me. I actually cast on socks with this yarn on January 1. I was going to knit some paw print socks with some purple Araucania Huasco Sock Kettle Dyes, but it was slow going and then I gave up and decided to knit some simple socks instead. THREE MONTHS LATER, I have finally finished these simple socks. I’m not thrilled with them either.
On the first sock, I dropped a stitch and didn’t realize it until many rows later, so I used a crochet hook to bring it back up, but it was so many rows that it puckered the yarn a little bit. Maybe that will loosen up in the wash? And then, LOOK. They are not the same length. I know it won’t matter when I wear them but it bothers me nonetheless. These have now been tucked away in my sock drawer for fall, when I will pull them out and be happy to wear them because they’re such a pretty color and I will have forgotten how annoying the process was.
Anyway, how’s your sock knitting going?
Your socks will be fine. My sock knitting will likely start up again in the second half of the year.
The purple looks rich in color. I’ve found a belated dropped stitch on occasion. Ugh! My sock knitting soothes me. I finished Gumball Machine yarn (artistic Yarn by Abi) pair just yesterday. Check them out on IG- @rutheh
They are a gorgeous color!! You have a good plan – give them a little time and they will make you really happy 🙂
The socks look great! I think that happy purple color will make all the frustrations you had with knitting them fade away quickly.
Beautiful colour. That’s why I end up doing TAAT because I can’t get them the same size otherwise 😂
With a bit of distance I think you’re right and you’ll love these again. Absence makes the sock grow fonder?!
They are so pretty! I am tempted to cast on another pair of socks, but I have so many other projects on the needles right now.
