The Scent of Lavender

20 Feb

Many socks bunch up when I wear them with heels, but these fit perfectly. (Ignore the splotch on my shoe. I'm a busy woman! Who has time to polish their shoes when there are socks to knit?)

I have completed my Scent of Lavender socks – and holidays still count as the weekend, so I made my deadline. Now I just have to wait for the weather to warm up so I can show them off. They fit perfectly with my favorite wedges, so I foresee a lot of skirt days this spring.

I really enjoyed this pattern, though I did make a modification by removing the ribbing on the bottom of the heel and toe. The ridges left by ribbing can be very uncomfortable to stand on, so I switched to regular, soft stockinette stitch for those sections.

I had just enough yarn from the ball my brother-in-law got me for Christmas, with a little bit leftover to go into my hexipuff stash.

These beauties aren't meant to be hidden in full shoes.

    That yarn is so pretty. It looks really soft.
