Happy, Happy Friday!
It’s been a while since I’ve had a finished project to share. I had a cast-on party for a while and now I’m working to get things finished. First up . . .
Pattern :: Hermione’s Everyday Socks by Erica Lueder
Yarn :: Plymouth Yarn Happy Feet
Needles :: US 1 (2.25 mm)
These socks were a fun knit and the fit is perfect. The pattern is a free download and very popular on Ravelry (6518 projects). Lovely, finished socks pop up on blog posts often.
The yarn was a gift from Karen of NothingButKnit ( Thank You! ) and new to me. I love the tight twist and the finished fabric is lovely. I know I’ll use this yarn again. I used the garter stitch edged eye of partridge heel from the pattern, but changed to a rounded toe because it fits me so much better than others. I highly recommend the pattern if you haven’t already given it a try.
As soon as these socks were finished, I cast on a pair for ~J~. I like having a pair on the needles and available. And ~J~ loves handknit socks 🙂

After the snow surprise earlier in the week, spring is in bloom here. The temperature is going back up and it promises to be a nice weekend.
Enjoy your Easter weekend!
