Nutkin (Christmas Countdown Day 15)

Hey, look! I finished my socks!

Nutkin in Done Roving Frolicking Feet Wild Blue Yonder

Three things about this knit:

1. This is the yarn from Wonderful Mother in Law. I love it. The colorway is gorgeous, the wool feels lovely running through knitting fingers, and my feet are loving it, too. Bonus – these socks only used 52 of the 100 grams! I am seriously thinking I could make those Turkish Bed Socks with it….

2. This pattern shows off this yarn perfectly. Plus, it was well written and easy to memorize and it flew off the needles very quickly. My only complaint is the short row directions, which leave holes. On the plus side, by the time I got to the toe of the second sock, I was proficient at it.

3. When one looks up this pattern on Ravelry, one reads a lot about the holes I mentioned above and that the socks twist. Yes, my socks twisted a little, even when I took great care to prevent them from doing so. Fortunately, the twist doesn’t bother me one iota.

So, another pair of happy feet.

Who would have thought I would become a sock knitter?
