Happy Friday! These socks were finished weeks ago but I never got around to showing them off.
Hedgerow Socks by Jane Cochran
Yarn: Knit Picks Stroll Fingering, basalt heather
Needles: 2.5 mm, 40″ circular
CO 2.4.12, BO 2.20.12
This is pair #4 for the 12 socks in 2012 group on Ravelry, and J’s second pair for the year. Hedgerow Socks is a free download from Knitter’s Review, a very straight forward ribbed stitch pattern that’s easy to memorize. The ribbing gives plenty of stretch and the pattern travels down the back of the heel, which I like very much. I’m especially fond of the rounded toe , first time for me. Fits well with just enough wiggle room. Stroll Fingering was nice to work with and made a very soft fabric. I love the basalt heather color. And since J has worn them several times already, I can tell you that they launder well. The Hedgerow Socks are definitely winners!
I hope you’ll visit Tami’s FO Friday and take a look at all the pretty projects folks have finished this week too.

Socks # 5 — No Purl Monkeys — and #6 — Duckies — are on the needles, but not seeing much love right now. I’ve been spending this week working on afghan squares. J has a workshop tomorrow so I just might make a trip to a new yarn store that opened recently. And I just might come home with some yarny goodness. Just might 🙂
I appreciate your visits and comments so much. Have a great Friday and enjoy your weekend!
