I finally finished the socks to match the Sakonnet baby hat. I don't know why I found making baby socks with worsted weight yarn on size US 5 needles to be such a pain. But I'm glad that they're done. And in time to be considered my October sock of the month, too.
A couple of weeks ago I went to an open house at the Shops at 25 West in Little Falls. The three craft shops that are in this co-op of stores all had door prizes. I naturally signed up for the one in the Pincushion Patchwork yarn shop and I won!
Isn't this gorgeous yarn? It's handspun merino sock yarn from Fat Cat Knits. She's a local spinner. Unfortunately, I don't find any sock yarn on her Etsy site. She does have some great rovings, though. Makes me wish I knew how to spin.
This is another pair that just seems to be taking forever to finish. Probably because I don't work on them. Maybe I'll get them done as my November socks.
