Pattern: hydrangea socks, petals collection
Yarn: Sundara Yarn
Needles: 2.75mm
Gauge: 18 sts/2 inches in pattern
Started: 8.25.06
Completed: 9.2.06
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.

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

  2. Sweet speedy knittng those are lovely! I so totally want in on the Petals Collection.
    ~nikki, new to your blog

  3. This pair looks lovely! And I’m looking forward to see your new knee highs.

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

  5. 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….
