The Handmade Sock Society II second sock pattern, Samphire, is finished. Just in time for the newest pattern release for the third sock in the series, which I’ll talk about in another post.
I kitchener stitched the toe yesterday morning before checking my email for the latest pattern reveal.
Once I figured out the lacy panel and a couple of lifelines, the socks flew off my needles. Well, the second sock flew. Knitting the second sock only took a week as I was busy with other things while knitting the first one.
Loving the deep, rich green of Knit Picks Stroll fingering yarn in Aurora Heather.
These socks aren’t blocked yet but truth be told, I haven’t blocked any of my finished socks.
My only mods were to substitute the slipped stitch heel flap for Eye of Partridge heel flap.
A great fit, too!
I never block socks either. I figure that’s what feet are for. 😉
Wow! You are a sock making genius.
Wow….they are beautiful! Great job!
They look great! I don’t typically block socks, I figure, when I wear them, they will get blocked!
