I’m long overdue a blog-post about the Cadence Socks I knitted for Wonder-Mum! The last post about this was on her actual birthday – I promised a big reveal the next day, then life got in the way a bit, with my Daddy bringing home Super-Granny from South Africa, a new product made for Coranda.com, and JS having a Big Birthday.
So, the socks knitted for Wonder-Mum were a Mystery Knit on Ravelry, the Cadence Socks. I knitted them in Jarol Ltd Heritage 4 Ply, which I bought at the Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts Show in London. It was the first pair of socks I’d knitted with a patterned cuff and instep, and I followed it all on a chart.
The socks were a fantastic knit – they were extremely engaging, with the pattern being nice and varied to keep the interest up. I love the look of them on Wonder-Mum. I adore the colour. These are probably the best thing I’ve ever knitted, and they are free on Ravelry, so go check out the pattern now!
JS Big Birthday
My lovely JS had a big birthday yesterday – I made him a sock a few weeks ago, then decided that I hated the pattern and frogged the whole thing. I only cast on the new pair two days before his actual birthday…so of course, I wasn’t finished. I gave them to him in my project bag, and I have until Friday to finish – so guess what I’m going to be doing this week!
That’s all from me for now, although I want to encourage you to head over to Coranda.com and tell me what you think about the newest product!
