I’ve finally finished my Dublin Bay socks that I started forever ago. I had such trouble with the second sock, I have no idea why I made so many mistakes! A bit of ripping and re-knitting later though, these are the first pair of hand-knit socks I have ever worn.
I finished them Saturday morning and wore them right away. I washed them yesterday and I am wearing them again today. They made it through the wash just fine, although I was a little too nervous to put them in the dryer. Maybe next time!
I love the lace panels down the sides of the sock. It makes them feel a little prettier than just plain socks, without being too overwhelming. But, even though I like them a whole lot, I think I’m changing my mind about my next project also being in fingering weight yarn – I might need a rest!
I’ve actually got a bug to do some sewing, there are a few little projects I need to get done!
