Not surprisingly, I am a little bit behind on some of my knitting projects. This pair of Hermione socks will be a birthday gift for my sister in NY. Her birthday was in December, but thankfully, she has been a very patient sissy.
The first sock is complete, and I am two pattern repeats from beginning the heel on the second sock. The yarn is The Fibre Company’s Canopy Fingering, which is quickly becoming one of my favorite sock yarns. Unlike last time, I am knitting this pattern in one solid color- Paw-Paw, which my sister picked out herself.
If you’ve never tried this yarn, I highly recommend it. It is a soft and slightly fuzzy blend of alpaca, merino wool and bamboo, and comes in beautiful kettle-dyed shades that are perfect for spring knitting. Once these are finished, I’ll move on to finishing my mother-in-law’s Shaelyn, followed by my Hedgerow socks.
So many projects, so very little time…Have a lovely week!
