It has been brought to my attention, that I haven't written a new blog post in a while. It hasn't been THAT long!
I've managed to finish the Hex socks, I'm happy to say. Boy, those little buggers gave me some trouble. You would have thought they were my very first pair of socks, I've knit!
Since many of you thought I should use English Toffee to knit this pattern, I happy grabbed it and went to work. I think it looks quite lovely.
pattern: Hex by Cookie A. (gifted to me by Wandering Cat Yarns)
yarn: Wandering Cat Yarns Alley Cat BFL-colorway English Toffee
I will definitely knit this pattern again. It's easy to knit, if your mind is not somewhere else. I had trouble with the stitch count, and that there were not the same amount of stitches on each needle (I plainly forgot that I had 70 stitches on my needles, instead of the 64 or 60 I ususally have). So the heel/flap/turn came out a little wonky on the first sock, which I only realized knitting the second sock, where I was more focused. Doesn't matter though, they fit, and I love them.
