Pattern: hydrangea socks, petals collection
Yarn: Sundara Yarn
Gauge: 18 sts/2 inches in pattern
Notes: Second sock/gusset, I lost track of the decrease rounds and didn’t count the stitches before I knit the foot of the sock. When I got to the toe decreases I realized that I had two extra stitches. I don’t think it made a huge difference, but I still wish I had checked the number of stitches on the needles before continuing the foot.
Yarn for my next pair of socks, Rowan 4ply soft in espresso.
ETA: I’m in the habit of buying one extra ball of yarn for all my projects. Sorry I didn’t realize I threw in that extra ball when taking a picture of the Rowan yarn above. The pattern requires 4 balls and uses needles US3.

The Swirly socks look lovely!
I can’t believe the Rowan knee highs take 5 balls of yarn…

The spiral socks fit so well. So much yarn for the next sock project, they must be knee highs!

The socks came out great. I tend to loose track also – I think the more socks you knit, the more you tend to do the same thing over again – so I try to count stitches each time before the foot, to get in the habit, just to make sure – though I can’t tell from the photos….
