So, here we have a pair of 'Movie Night' socks. I received the pattern and yarn two Christmases ago from my dear friend Josiekitten. I even cast them on on that very Christmas Day! Then, sadly, they quietly in a corner, unfinished, but definitely not unloved. The yarn is scrummy Hazelknits, which gives fabulous stitch definition and simply gorgeous squishy socks. I accidentally made them longer than stated, by miscounting the number or repeats in the first leg. By the time I'd noticed I had gone too far and certainly had no intention of frogging. My only concern began to be whether of not there would be enough yarn. In fact there was, with some to spare!
The pattern is by Anne Hanson, who produces just the best patterns ever. It's an addictive and easy to memorise pattern, with just enough detail to hold your interest. I love the heel stitching!
I'll certainly be making this pattern again!
We went up to the coast yesterday afternoon. It's Oscar's favourite place on earth!
He had a great time! It delayed my report writing still further; no surprise there though.
