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.
Have you finished anything lately?
I finished a hat, but it’s charity knitting with yuck yarn, so I will go back to my Maenporth Cowl using soooooft Highland Duo yarn. The socks look so cozy!

What an unusual stitch! I’m in the middle of making a pair of slippers. It’s time to cut the steeks and I have to get up the courage to do it.
Those are really nice! Counting rows or pattern repeats sure does make it easier to make them the same.
I haven’t finished anything but spinning projects lately. Knitting moves slowly!
I love the color and they look my size!!!!!!hahaha
