FO: Sail Away Socks (pattern page). I started these back in June when the pattern was released, but only just got around to finishing them. I’ve been so busy learning to sew (more FO posts in the near future! sewing is so much faster than knitting) that I only just realized this is only my fourth pair of socks this year! Compared to last year (when I knit 11 or 12) that number seems so low.
On these socks, I particularly love the way the trapezoidal shapes were formed, and the way they actually look like the sails that inspired them. The yarn is Sunshine Yarns Classic Sock, which was also the June shipment yarn. I enjoyed working with it, although I’m skeptical about the 100% merino content for hardwearing socks. I did go down a needle size to compensate, so I hope they hold up!
