FO Friday: The Knit Sky Socks

I have a new pair of socks ready for Fall, whenever that comes to Kansas. My Knit Sky Socks are complete and just need a final blocking.

Pattern: My own vanilla toe up 68 stitch socks (ravelry link)

Needles: US 1s

Yarn: KnitCircus Greatest of Ease in the Knit Sky gradient with Cascade Heritage Solids in Italian Plum for contrast toes and heels

It feels like this project just started. In fact I finished them in just over a month, which is fast for me anyway. I started the toes in Cascade Heritage Solids in the plum and and then added the KnitCircus gradient at then end of the toe increases.

I’m really happy with the fit but the gradient was kind of a surprise. The gradient really started out subtle and by the middle of the skein it changed colors quickly and dramatically. Don’t get me wrong, I really like it but it was interesting to watch it develop. My gradient yarn was two 25 gram matching cakes and I used almost every inch of it to make these socks. Felt really good not to have leftovers!

I’m already itching to wind up another skein of self-striping yarn. Can’t let my needles get cold!! Happy Knitting!!
