azalea socks in the (not) wildwood
posted by soe 1:08 am

This is cheating a bit, because I completed these socks back in August, but I’m pretty sure I never showed you the finished socks. Today was my first time wearing them, August not being particularly conducive to sporting wool, so I thought I’d get a couple glamour shots from the park I visited (Chuck Brown Memorial/Langdon Park). Unfortunately, I didn’t remember I wanted to take pictures until the sun was already down (which does somewhat negate the purpose of waiting to model the socks until the clouds went away), so I was racing against the gloaming.

These were supposed to be my springtime socks, knit in time to model with the local azalea bloom season, but those plans didn’t come to flower.

The details:

The yarn is Knitterly Things Vesper Sock in merino in the In the Wildwood colorway. I knit my standard picot stockinette default for stripey socks, but used two needle sizes this time — 2.5 mm for the leg and 2.25 mm for the feet. I started them April 26th and finished August 12th.

Expect more shots of FOs in the next week!
