Sock It To Me Monday – Wispy Crown Edition

First of all, thank you all for your comments on yesterday’s post. I’m very ok with not knitting for most of July, this does happen a lot of the time (see as recently as April lol!) so it’s definitely something I’m used to! Nothing major happening over here, it’s all good, but I really appreciate the support!

As I mentioned, I do have a finished object to share today!

  • Pattern: Wispy Crown Socks by Heidi Kรคstner 
  • Yarn: Quince & Co Finch in the colorway Cypress 
  • Timeline: cast on 6/20, cast off 7/18

I’m really happy with how these socks turned out! First of all, the yarn is PERFECT for socks. It’s really plump and high twist. I have another pair with Finch and they hold up really well. Also the colorway is really great! The perfect mix between green and teal. The pattern itself is also really nice. There was just enough patterning at the beginning to keep me interested but, transitioned to an easy to remember pattern on the top of the foot. There was a really cool tubular cast on that I enjoyed making. I also really like the linen stitch heel – this is the first time trying that technique and I really like it! I did these a little shorter, doing only two repeats of the pattern before moving on to the foot. This pattern is still in development but I would definitely recommend it once it’s been published!

  1. WOW!! These came out beautiful – congratulations! (The heelflap looks super sophisticated because of the linen stitch) Isn’t it very hot where you are right now? I didn’t knit much last year either … just sweltered under the heat.

    1. Yes it is very hot! But I have central air conditioning and haven’t left the house in two weeks so I haven’t really noticed it haha! I certainly don’t feel like picking up my worsted weight sweater, but getting through these socks was fine ๐Ÿ™‚
