I feel a bit weird, because I did my “what’s next” post before the wrap up post – mainly because I didn’t finish the last pair of socks until 11.30pm on the 31st of sOctober. Such a ridiculous self-imposed deadline.
And what a magnificent pair of socks they are. Gladys by my current favourite sock designer, General Hogbuffer. Designed to look like a gansey, these are just the manliest of manly socks.
The yarn, which I dyed myself, ended up a little more variegated than I was expecting, and pooled a bit, but still in a manly manner.
These socks used more yarn than many I’ve made - 73 grams - I expect because of the amount of patterning. Once I got the hang of the pattern it was easy to memorise and fun to knit.
And for the final wrap up of the funnest month of the year, here is a picture of all six pairs of socks from sOctober, which ended up being a very productive month.
Now onwards to hats and jumpers!
