More socks!

I’m still hand knitting socks, though I haven’t posted about them for nearly 9 years. Has it really been that long?? I’ve knitted quite a few pairs since then, but these are the latest pair finished today.

It took a few tries to get the tension correct, though I got there in the end.¬†Even the tiniest variation in the tension would mess up the pattern and you’d only get stripes. The pattern called for a standard toe and an afterthought heel, but I didn’t do either of those as I refuse to do Kitchener stitch! I did a round toe and my easy no wrap short row heels instead.

The yarn is Wool and the Gang’s Kinda Magic sock yarn. It’s made by Regia and is part of their Pairfect range, though it’s exclusive to WATG.
