I've used Erica Lueder's Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern before but I had a feeling the texture would show up better in a plain yarn so I decided I'd knit a pair in some Cascade Heritage yarn in the charcoal colourway. I was right, this time round the pattern shows up much better.
I quite fancied this pair of socks myself but Eleanor was home a couple of weeks ago as she was going to an Ed Sheeran concert, she saw me knitting them and, just as I thought, she quite fancied them too. They'll be making their way to Nottingham in some Happy Mail to cheer up any grey days Eleanor might have ahead of her, it's exam time after all. Mick's working in Nottingham on Monday so he'll drop the box of goodies off in person and if Eleanor's really lucky, he might even take her out for tea.
Whoever said that students have it hard?
