I'm on a roll. I've managed to double the number of pairs of socks I knit last year. Okay, I know I only managed one pair last year and these latest socks make the grand sum of two pairs knitted this year, but I do believe that my knitting mojo is returning.
Petunia Dursley's Doublet Eyelet Socks pattern by Erica Lueder is a favourite pattern of mine, I've used it a couple of times before and I like the effect the double eyelet pattern gives, it's so pretty. I deviated a little from the pattern, I made shortie socks, more akin to trainer socks, rather than socks with a longer leg, and I also substituted the heel the pattern called for and knit a Fish Lips Kiss Heel by Sox Therapist instead.
The yarn I used was some West Yorkshire Spinners I had left over in stash from another project in the Mojito colourway. I used Chocolate Lime for the heels.
I've been knitting up a few dishcloths, I much prefer knitted ones than any you can buy, and there's quite a few projects I'm ready to start in the new year. Yes, my knitting mojo has definitely made a comeback.
