My knitting mojo has been pretty low recently, so it feels good to finally have an FO off my needles again.
Pattern: Whitethorn socks by Lindsey Fowler
Yarn: La Bien Aimee tough sock in a Happy Accident colourway
My low knitting mojo means I do still pick up my needles occasionally, but I haven’t been very focused on one project, and a lot of the time I just mindlessly knit a couple of hexipuffs. Yesterday was Eurovision however, and I used it as an excuse to finally get this pair of socks finished.
This is a pretty fun pattern to make, the cable repeat is not that hard to memorise and keeps the knitting interesting. I think in terms of yarn I’m a bit on the edge with how much business the pattern allows for, but it still works out and the cables pop more than enough.
I like both the pattern and the yarn. I recently bought some speckle-dyed yarn from La Bien Aimée, too, and look forward to seeing how it knits up.
