I often forget how much I enjoy knitting (and wearing) socks. It still amazes me how much I enjoy them. Meet Francie.
I love these socks. This is the fourth time knitting them even though I wanted to knit myself a pair at least once before. The pattern is too big for me, even when I knit them with smaller needles, so instead I knit a standard toe on the pattern. The obvious drawback is that the pattern is incomplete and the whole effect is gone. The good news is that the sock fits my feet and I don’t have to give them away (again).
I’ve never been a great fan of vibrant colors to be honest, but these colors made me very happy. For some reason this fall/ winter has been very bleak and grayish and I really feel the need for some colorful knits. This is one of them. The pattern is Harvest Dew and it’s a free rav download.
