Summer Socks FO

I started these socks on the 1st of June and just finished them today.  That’s a long time to make a pair of socks!  But I’m sure you are just as sick and tired of hearing me complain about my shoulder as I am sick and tired of having this pain in my shoulder, so I won’t go on about it.  It’s enough to say that my knitting has crawled to almost nothing compared to what I was doing earlier this year.

Here are the stats for the socks:
Pattern: Helen Socks by verybusymonkey (only available on Ravelry as far as I can see)
Yarn: Cascade Heritage Sock, (75% wool, 25% nylon, superwash) purchased from Harlequin Yarns (Utrecht)
Needles: 2.25mm, 2 circulars

They knit up really fast and made for a perfect traveling project.  The pattern stitch is quickly memorized so there’s seldom the need to look up instructions.

These socks were part of the Sock Knitters Anonymous June challenge for “under appreciated patterns”.  The pattern you chose had to have no more than 15 projects assigned to it on Ravelry as of 1 June.  Even today these socks have only 13 projects on Ravelry.  What a shame!  They are great socks!  Go on, you know you want to make a pair…..

    Really, really nice! Odd how they’re only in 13 projects on Ravelry.
