FO – Hedera Socks

posted in: Finished Objects, knit | 0

It’s again Finished Object friday. In today’s episode I show you my first project with my handspun yarn.

hedera socks - Party collage fiber yarn

In spring time (yes, some months ago) there was a knitalong/ spinalong in the Zauberwiese group on Ravelry.

This colorful fiber caught my eyes. It’s called Party and contains 70% wool and 30% nylon. Perfect for socks. It’s a 3-ply, navajo-plied in fingering weight.

Within one week I spun the yarn. Colours keep me motivated and it’s always a pleasure to see how it turns out.

To knit the socks took me a bit longer. I started on the train towards Backnang. Unfortunately shortly afterwards I had an injury. But slowly I started to knit again and finish them.

The socks are knitted cuff down with a slip stitch heel.

The lace pattern is very easy to memorize. Only four rows to remind. Thanks to the mixture of knit and purl stitches it produces a stretchy sock.

For a handspun yarn it looks very even. And it makes me really proud. It will be definitely not my last project with handspun yarn.

Have you ever knitted with handspun yarn? If you’re a spinner, what was your first project with your handspun yarn?
