I'm back home again, on my computer, and I am THRILLED to hear that my Bloomin' Feet pal, Sarah, has received her socks; Canada Post finally deigned to deliver them!!! It's times like this I wish that parcels could tell you about their journey.

Anyway, here's what they look like...

Yarn: Merino Cashmere Sock in the "Moonlight" colourway from The Knittery
Pattern: Friday Harbor from Nancy Bush's Knitting On The Road

Thoughts: These were my first 'lace' project. At first I was going to knit Monkey socks, but the yarn/pattern/size didn't work, in my opinion. Flicking through KOTR I found the Friday Harbor socks. I particularly liked the fact that the lace continued down on the foot and that the leg had a ribbed section which allowed some stretch so I could sure they'd fit my pal's measurements. I also slightly adjusted the pattern by adding extra stitches to compensate for the fact that I was using fingering weight yarn. I kitchenered the toes, as I prefer that to just drawing the yarn through the remaining stitches and pulling tight.

If you'd like to see what else I sent, check out Sarah's post for more details.

Sorry they took so long to arrive Sarah! (Boo & hiss @ Canada Post!)

Thanks again to Amanda for hosting a great swap!

  • The socks look so lovely - both the pattern & the yarn. I was thinking of knitting a pair of socks for a friend with yarn from the Knittery & now you confirmed it! Thanks for the inspiration!

  • Beautiful! The pattern in so interesting - I like the slanty lace down the front. The color is delicious too.

  • I have a couple of Knittery yarns, but seeing these gorgeous socks, I'll just have to get out the plastic card and do some shopping there again :-)
