My Cheery Vanilla Socks got their last heel installed and I have all the ends woven but not clipped. Happy Finished Object Friday to all!!
Pattern: My own toe up vanilla “recipe” for 72 stitches with an afterthought heel
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in Cheer. I used about 305 yards or 70 grams of yarn to make these. (I have a US 9.5 to 10 foot, the struggle is real you guys….)
Needles: US 0
Mods: I made shorties this time that land just above my shoe line.
They are snug without being tight. They seem to stay on my feet as I made sure to make my heel deep enough this time. Prior attempts with shorties left with socks that liked to slip off my heel and down into my shoe. Surprisingly they match pretty darn well. I honestly can’t remember if I tried to do that on purpose or it was a happy accident. I’ll take it either way.
These still need a good wash to get the martini scent out and even out some of the stitches. Oh, and I’m noticing that the heels don’t match exactly. Maybe I can use this to designate a left and a right sock?
I’ve been puttering around with these socks since August 2018 so I felt pretty chuffed to clear my needles and have a pair of socks to add to my drawer. And the yarn has been in my stash since 2015 so that feels good as well. I like to see some of my older but yet still loved yarn see its full potential.
