FO Friday!

Happy, happy, happy Friday! In the fibery world, it means it's time for another FO Friday and I have something to show off (for the second week in a row). Please, be amazed. Or not. Whatever. It's totally up to you!

Anyway, here we have my latest FO :)

Done done done done done....... (project page here)

Pattern: None. These are basic stockinette socks with a heel flap and gusset heel decreases.
Time Frame: started June 29, 2012; finished May 24, 2013
Yarn: Sock Yarn from htNEVELE (Etsy shop)
Needles: US #1 (2.25 mm) - I used two 32" circulars
Size: To fit me
Modifications: None - it's a pattern from my own little head
Thoughts: The yarn is somewhat self-striping but after I did the decreases, the stripes got all messed up. I suppose I should have expected it. I was hoping it would continue a little but it just didn't happen. I think if I make socks like this again, and I can almost guarantee that I will, I will remember to CO onto two needles and maybe make the cuff a little longer.

Anyway, here are some more shots of my socks :)

For more FO Friday fun, visit Tami :) (I'll be visiting as soon as I wake up...and as soon as she posts so I can linky)


  1. They are beautiful! I am amazed with! Totally! I haven’t made one sock in my life – though I have “The knitters’ almanac” so I think this will change pretty soon. ;-) Anyway – fantastic job!

  2. Well done you on getting another fo done, something is in the air as from Sunday's pink milo I've gotten two wip's finished with another project started and should be complete before Sunday, don't know what strange and wonderful things have alined in the universe for me to have so many but I won't complain. Love the feet in the socks shot btw, your feet look so comfy !

  3. I love your socks! They're beautiful:)

  4. I love the effect on the heel! And I like the pooling on the footsies. Very nice!

  5. These socks remind me of one of the salt water fish! Electrifying!
    Fun dishcloth on the newer post BTW.
