These might be the latest Christmas gift I’ve ever given… I actually finished them back in February, but between my schedule and J’s schedule, we haven’t seen each other that much, and I wanted to make sure I got pictures of them before giving them to him. Oh well – he has them now! The pattern is Petty Harbour by Rayna Curtis, and it’s definitely one I’ll be using again. It’s simple yet striking, and the stitch pattern is really easy to memorize and keep track of. The pattern also has lots of sizes, which I find really helpful when making socks as a gift. The yarn I used was a coned yarn from an LYS (Romni), who gets it from a mill – so it’s not branded. It’s an 80% wool, 20% nylon blend. This yarn will be great for making lots of socks, but it’s only 2 ply, and really a light fingering weight. I will definitely be using smaller needles and possibly doubling the yarn on the next pair I make, as I have lots of this yarn left in this blue and a forest green.
I hope you are having a wonderful weekend!
