A mini-blog

I started these socks in 2018 but for varying reasons I didn’t keep up with them – knowing me I probably got distracted by new projects!

During the summer of 2020 the lovely Angela from Yarn n Yarns hosted a knit-a-long (KAL) titled the ‘Summer of Socks!’ and this was the perfect encouragement for me to grab these out of hibernation and get them finished.

The sock has a standard construction with a heel flap and gusset, there’s a rounded toe which decreases towards the end, rather than end with Kitchener stitch.

There is a simple twisted rib which is a lovely feature, enough variation to keep the pattern interesting and simple enough to be able to knit while watching TV!
