Another sock…

I’m very excited about finishing my second pair of socks for 2011! However, I’m not counting these officially for my 11 in 2011 as really they were started back in September 2009. That’s right… I just finished a pair of socks that I started a little under 18 months ago. How awesome is that?

I love how these came out! Of course I’d had the first one done all this time, so I knew I’d love them, but it feels good to get these off the needles and onto my feet.

I knit these using Hazel Knits Artisan Sock. It’s a lovely color (Fireberry) and the yarn is wonderful but a bit cottony feeling. Reminded me a bit of a heavier Wollmeise, actually. I still love the feeling of the socks on my feet, though… just like WM! 🙂

In other knitting news, I’m done with all the prototypes for my hat (thanks for all the lovely comments on the last post!) and it’s currently being test knit. Pattern will be coming out around Valentine’s Day, so be ready for it! Here’s a sneak peek with the pile of Nouveau Bohemia goodness. So yummy!

  1. For a second I was like, WOW! She’s already done two pairs of socks in 2011?! But then you said you started them over a year ago, so that helped to make me feel less like the slowest sock knitter on earth (I haven’t yet finished the sock #1 of the first pair I started this year). I really like the yarn color, too. I haven’t knit with Hazel Knits yarn yet, but I really feel like I should at some point because that’s my dog’s name (Hazel, not Knits). Hopefully I’ll eventually manage to get a skein in my hands!

  2. I say they count when they are finished:) Fireberry is the perfect name for such a beautiful color.
    Can’t wait to see your hat pattern published. Way to go!

  3. those are so pretty! i’m kind of unofficially doing 11 in 2011,too (unofficially meaning I haven’t joined any groups or anything). I’ve got one and a half pairs done myself . so, you go,girl!

  4. Beautiful socks! Congratulations on finishing them! I have quite a few old socks on the needles and it really feels good to finish an old pair 🙂

    I love your hats, looking forward to the pattern!
