cummington and finished socks!

June 1, 2011

handspun socks

i finally finished my handspun socks, just in time for the summer!

sock heel

i’m not incredibly happy with the heel, but since i did them without a refresher on the ratios for a toe-up flap/gusset heel in a traffic jam on my way to one of my boyfriend’s band’s shows a few weeks ago, i’m ok with it.

i also went to mass sheep & wool in cummington with my friend from webs, liz.

    Love the socks! Do you live in western mass? I’m looking for a knitting group to join. I live in Northampton. Just wondering 🙂

      I do live in Western Mass! But I’m a pretty solitary knitter, and unfortunately don’t know a ton of knitting groups. I think there was one for a while meeting at Sams, which may have moved to the Yellow Sofa. You could try asking on the Western Mass ravelry board!
