These socks are going to take FOREVER!!! But I love how they are turning out. The whole thing that started my desire to knit socks was a Tumblr post going around a couple weeks ago (I can’t find it now) that listed a whole bunch of free Ravelry knit socks patterns. I fell in love with the pattern for “Hermione’s Everyday Socks" and now that I have successfully made a pair of socks with worsted weight yarn and medium size needles I decided to try the Hermione socks (sorta).
I always alter patterns in crochet and apparently knitting is no different. I am going toe-up even though the pattern is written top down, and using the heel technique I learned from KnitFreedom, but found the original creator’s blog which listed the formula for figuring out how much I have to increase for the heel HERE.
I’ve been training at my new job, but I have the next two days off, so hopefully I can get a good chunk of these done before I go back to work on Thursday.
