When I was tossing my bin of hand knits I found a bag of socks that I had stashed away like three winters ago. I remember that I took these out becuase they had some sort of problem. But past Rachelle left NO NOTES, lol.
I took some time to try them on and deduce why I pulled them from sock rotation. I ended up with one pair with a too tight bind off and two pairs where my afterthought heels were too small and the socks slid down my foot.
I’m going to fix the blue/purple socks with a better bind off. I am fairly certain these were my first ever pair of socks from indie dyed “special” sock yarn. I want to keep them in my drawer.
The two pair that are too small have no sentimental value as they are Knit Picks Felici and some Dove Roving yarn that bled. These two pairs will find new homes with someone with smaller feet….possibly my sister. Feels very freeing to make decisions and move some items out of the “to do” pile!
