Finito: Qianer’s Mystery Socks


I have finally finished the SolidSocks July/August mystery sock project!©

Qianer's first Mystery Socks by Qianer Huang

Yarn: Woolcraft Superwash Sock Yarn

Ravelled here© 

I hated the colour I initially dyed this yarn, but was too eager to start knitting to re-dye. I ended up re-dying the finished socks with more blue dye, and now have teal socks. Big improvement :)

It’s been a while since I knit cables, and this was a fun little re-introduction. The only change to the pattern I made was to knit two repeats of the seed stitch fairy wings instead of three, as I was a little concerned that I wouldn’t have enough yarn. Turns out I needn’t have worried, I have plenty left over! If I was to knit this project again though, there are a couple of other changes I’d make. For one, I’d definitely make a slipped stitch selvedge for the heel flap to make life easier when picking up the stitches! I also thought about mirror-ing the cables, but in the end decided that I was far too lazy for that kind of mental effort!


I should probably get a start on knitting Christmas presents, but I’ve a feeling I’m going to spend the Bank Holiday weekend selfishly knitting for me. And maybe going to the pub. :)
