Only one toe to go: HedgerowSocks

0109_HedgerowSocks.jpg

The Socktober Mystery Socks were ripped and I started Hedgerow Socks instead. I don't like sock knit patterns with yarnovers or other hole creating stiches and Hedgerow socks fit the bill. I saw the link to pattern on Yarn Harlots site.  I am using size 1 40'' addi turbo circulars, one sock at a time only. I like this better than dpns now because it is seemingly less dangerous to knit around my son this way...fewer sharp points. Only one more toe to go.

All my Socks...so far

It looks like a bunch of laundry, but these this is my collections of all the socks I have knitted so far. they are all in good shape except the second pair I knitted, the ones with the blue stripes. The hourglass heel on those is sorta coming undone. Can you tell I like green, brown and black?
