in a tavern.

These aren’t technically done as I still have ends to weave in but the light outside was perfect to photograph my newly finished socks.

There’s nothing particularly unique about these – they are my stand-by vanilla sock recipe that fits perfectly and provide great on-the-go projects. I start the toes on at home, then tuck the project into my purse and finish them as I can over the space of a few months.

As you know, I’m a big fan of the Fish Lips Kiss Heel. It fits my narrow heel really well. I didn’t add the ribbing above the heel this time, which I did on my Fluormania socks.

There’s nothing particularly interesting about these socks but I really like them! The colourway is awesome – it’s one of my favourite colourways that Felicia has, particularly for socks. And I really love the woolly-goodness of these BFL socks – they are slightly thicker, denser and warmer than any of my other hand knit socks except my Noro knee socks. I think that’s mostly due to the length and a slightly thicker yarn.

Into my #operationsockdrawer these go!

  1. Socks are such great on-the-go projects, aren’t they? I throw mine in my purse too and knit anywhere I can if I’m sitting more than ten minutes. I adore the colorway you’ve chosen, it seems very appropriate for the fall! Makes me want to smell burning leaves and drink some hot cocoa while making s’mores by the fireplace!
