Hurray, it's Friday and I've got a finished pair of socks. The pattern is Hiiumaa Mismatched Mates from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush. Gavin agreed to model them this morning but no matter where and how he stood, the cat absolutely insisted on circling his feet and being in the picture. Apparently she feels that I should feed her and give her a few treats before messing around with socks.
I'm pleased with these socks and not just because they fit Gavin beautifully. And not just because he likes them. And not just because he think I should make a pair of the stripier version for him. Knitted with Kroy sock yarn they're warm, sturdy, sensible socks. I really like that about them.
It's also been a great stash-busting project. The stripes are various leftover bits and bobs of Kroy self-patterning sock yarns. For my year of projects, I'm knitting all seventeen patterns from Knitting on the Road. This is the fifth finished pair and so far it's all been from the stash. No sign of running out of yarn anytime soon!
Have a look at the blogs from crafters who've linked up at Tami's Amis for Finished Object Friday. Lots more to see!
