These socks were cast on, knit, cast of, and ends woven in ALL during the run of The Mousetrap, and only worked on backstage.
Pattern: Circle Socks
Yarn: Blue Moon Fibre Arts Socks that Rock, colourway ‘the incredible shrinking violet’
Size: Mine! Womens 8.
Notes: I didn’t really make changes to the pattern, but I did do the gusset slightly differently than the instructions because I didn’t quite get it. They fit great, and I’m looking forward to wearing them in the cold weather we’re having.
As you can see, we don’t have a star or and angel for the top of our tree, but we do have a bendy reindeer. We actually have two bendy reindeer; you can see #2 on the bookcase trying to figure out how to find his friend.
These socks were a great knit, and it was even more fun because there were two knitters in the cast, who’d check my work every day to make sure I was making progress.
It was a good Christmas around here, no knitting content, but then I didn’t really ask for any apart from pattern books. Lots of warm sweaters and DVDs and other books though!
