Finished project – Fyre Festival socks

These were on and off the needles in the space of a month. I like them a lot, and I like you guys a lot too, to be prepared to put socks on for photos today when we’re in the grip of a mini-heatwave.

The basic structure of the sock is from the Hermione’s Everyday Socks pattern, which I followed faithfully except for switching out the stitch pattern for the leg/foot with a slightly weird twisty turny lace one instead (it’s at the bottom of this post, if you are interested in trying the same). I did five repeats of the lace pattern in the leg, and 4.5 repeats on the foot.

I really like the garter eye-of-partridge heel. The stitches picked up along the edge of the garter strips grow seamlessly out of them – very satisfying. I will use again.

Ahh but it is too hot to craft a clever long blog post, though. Have some more photos and feel free to insert your own witty commentary as appropriate. Oh, and you can read an explanation for the name of these socks here.

        So true. I am currently knitting socks for my son. I picked up this yarn with rich colors called Kente Cloth. They will make quite the statement!

  5. I seriously adore the orange. I need to pull out a skein of orange from my stash and start knitting with it. They turned out so awesome. Thank you too for posting how you knit the lace section. It’s really cool!

    1. You’re welcome – would love it if someone else tried it one day. And I’m definitely a convert to knitting in a ridiculous splash of bright orange!
