Project: January Hedgerow Socks
Pattern: Hedgerow socks
Yarn: Malabrigo sock in Lotus
I decided a little while back that my Effervesce socks were not going to be finished in time for this month’s sock challenge. So I broke out a skein of Malabrigo and chose a simple, comforting ribbed sock pattern and went to town. I finished these up just in time for my January socks for Liesl’s challenge.
I enjoyed this pattern. It plays with the regular ribbing design and keeps things interesting by adding in a bit of texture using different stitches. I altered the pattern just a smidge and worked a short row heel rather than the heel flap + gusset. It took me a couple tries to get my picked up wraps looking pretty, but now that I have it figured out, I am definitely a fan of these simple heels.
These socks are a happy addition to my sock drawer and they are doing their job keeping my toes warm on this snowy Saturday.
