FO Friday

FO = finished object

Yay!  One more pair of socks for the gift pile…or myself.

This is the Handmade Sock Society Season 2 first sock: Shell Cottage.  If you’ve ever knit anything from Helen Stewart, you know how well written her patterns are.  She lists each row and the stitch count so it’s easy to put down the project and pick it up again.  I still kept track of my rows on the sock foot so I could make they were both the same length.  I learned the hard way to count my rows rather than just measure the length as it is easy to stretch an item to make it fit (and hurry the knitting along).

The second sock in the series will be released next month.

Knit Picks Stroll fingering yarn in Basalt Heather, 69 grams.  Size #1 (2.25mm) needle.

I really like the texture.

Have you finished anything lately?
