Twisted Flower

I finished my fourth pair of socks this year!

Pattern: Twisted Flower by Cookie A
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Velvet Plum
Needles: US0 / 2.0mm ChiaoGoo circulars

I’m clearly still behind schedule for my self-imposed sock club, but… whatever. I’m not completely without hope for finishing that on time. I’ve got plenty of travelling (aka knitting time) planned for December, and one of my two remaining pairs is just a 3×1 ribbed sock, so it’s possible, right?

Anyway, back to this particular pair of socks. I knit the small size as written. I’m a little sad that the pattern doesn’t show up better on my feet, especially since it showed nicely on the blocker in my WIP post. Oh well. I still like these.

It’s a pretty fun pattern, and more intuitive than it looks.

I have a surprisingly small amount of Jitterbug left over, and I can’t decide whether it’s due to the pattern eating up yarn, the yardage of the original skein, or both. Good thing I have short legs and average-sized feet, otherwise I wouldn’t have had enough of this yarn to finish the pair.

On to the fourth

Since I’m done with Bayerische, I’ve of course moved on to a new pair of socks. Here’s a look at the current ones in progress:

Twisted Flower is a Cookie A pattern I’ve had in my library for awhile. It’s super fun! With a little bit of lace, a few twisted stitches, and some cable crossings, there’s never a dull moment with this sock, as far as I’m concerned. In fact, the reason I haven’t finished this yet is because it’s a little too interesting for work or reading knitting.

The yarn is Colinette Jitterbug, which I love so far! I’ve never worked with it before, and now I seriously wish I hadn’t waited so long.
