Hi everyone, how are you all doing?
Well look at this we’re at the start of another month, where the heck did June go?
I’m gradually working with my ever expanding WIP pile, and June has been a busy one! This month I managed to finish a couple of shawls, a scarf and a baby blanket. I’m still working on Alice the Zebra from Edward’s Menagerie so far she has a body, head and leg!!
However I’m easily distracted and decided to start a pair of socks. I had caked up some scrummy yarn from Oh For Hook’s Sake that I had ear marked for the socks, I just wasn’t sure of a pattern yet.
So after seeing some lovely socks made to a Magpie and Goblin pattern on insta, I headed over to Ravelry and finally settled for their Black Orchid pattern, I was actually going to make a pair socks!!
The pattern suggested a size 3mm hook, but I decided to size up to a 4mm because A) I’m a tight crocheter and B) my Sasquatch feet. Working through the pattern the instructions were clear and easy to follow, I did stumble round the toe; but think this was because I was crocheting well past my bedtime! As soon as I got it I was well away, I have to say I love the overall effect, I finished the first sock this morning, it worked up quickly and looks great in the yarn, my only disappointment is that they feel and look a bit too big. I should have played about with the hook sizes and not mad such a big jump to a 4mm but in saying that I think they will be fab in the cooler months!
Now on to the next one and then get back to Alice!
Let me know what you’ve been up to! ☺️
