New Socks!

I finished a pair of socks the other day - Kate Blackburn's Catherine, a free pattern available here, along with several other awesome free patterns. I love these socks - they're very simple and an easy knit, but the final product is classic and elegant. I used Knit Picks Stroll Tonal - a good buy for the price (particularly because I got this skein on sale for $7), but not my favourite sock yarn.


  1. I really like the colour you chose for the socks. :-) It's an awkward pattern because it does need a pretty much solid yarn to make all the diamonds show up clearly and I'm pleased you're happy with the end result!

  2. Thanks! I love the subtle variegation and the way it works with the texture :) I just love the pattern, in general.
