I finished a pair of socks that I’ve been working on for a while. I started them back when I was participating in that single sock swap. I couldn’t decided which yarn to use for my pal so I started knitting my chosen pattern in two different yarns. I decided to send the other one and put this one aside for a while. I got it out again for a recent trip and was inspired to finish them.
The pattern in Baltic Socks by Clementine’s Shoes and I used Oceanwind Knits Merino in Amber. I’d never seen this yarn before (ordered it via The Sweet Sheep) but I love it. It was a delight to knit with.
I made a few modifications to the pattern:
- Picot cuff because I didn’t think the ribbing did the lovely pattern justice
- Short row heel because I like doing them and they fit me well
- Short row toe with 3 needle bind off because I was traveling and didn’t have a darning needle with me
I must say, I’m quite taken with these socks. They fit very well, they are very soft (especially compared to my last socks – Kureyon), and they have such a lovely leafy motif. And I really love the color.
