The 2009 Personal Sock Club 4 socks are finally finished. Late.
They were due to be finished by July 27, so they're almost two months late. The pattern is Jane Cochran's Hedgerow Socks (free pattern) in Madelinetosh Tosh Sock in Lichen. Restrained, well-written pattern, subtle colour, beautiful yarn.
But these socks have taken so much time and effort that the only emotion I currently feel about them is relief at having finished.
I opened the much delayed Personal Sock Club 5 envelope and found it contained both yarn and pattern. I'm planning to make Jane Lithgow's Cornish Scallop Socks from Araucania Ranco Multy in a pretty combination of aqua and pink-maroon. Jane originally knitted the socks with contrast heels and toes, but I'll just knit from the already varied Araucania.
I wonder if I can catch up to my schedule by the end of the year? Probably not. Maybe I'll just aim not to fall any further behind.
