FO: Tower Hill Birthday Socks

Botany 1

So, I love my mom.  And after last year’s disastrous pair of socks (which didn’t fit right and hurt her feet) I wanted to make it up for her.

So I made her a pair of stripey socks, because everyone needs stripey socks, no matter how old, or young they are.

But, not only that, they were custom made for her.  I’m trying to design the perfect sock pattern for me, so this was a chance to try out the pattern I have been designing in Felici Sport as seen in my Kingpurse and Sunny Being a Kid socks.

So, turns out I was able to solve all the problem, the bottoms are comfy, the legs are long enough and they are a fun, stripey pattern.

Happy Birthday Mom (back on October 12th), I might have been 7 days late out of the womb, and this post might be 2 months late, but I got your socks made in time this year!

– Details –

Project Name: Tower Hill Birthday Socks

Pattern: Mine!

Recipient: MummyAnne – my superawesome Mom

Yarn: KnitPicks Felici in Botany

Modifications:

  • Pattern is still in development, that way they are design features not mods.

New Skills:

  • Stockinette Short-Row Heel

Feedback:

  • Yarn: Felici is nice, but it is probably more of a light fingering than a standard fingering. I find myself preferring Felici Sport to Felici Fingering.
  • Pattern: It’s still not perfect. but I’m getting close to my perfect plain sock pattern.

Re-Knit?: Yes, becuase I will get my perfect plain sock, and Felici is my preferred plain sock yarn so I will be knitting these again, and again, and again.
