Summer of Love

Summer of Love

These socks are knitted from a pattern called "Summer of Love", the August offering of the Rockin' Sock Club. I'm a bit behind. Finished these a week or so ago and I'm on the heel of the first October sock, a pattern called "Lenore" in a colorway called "Raven". I like this pattern a lot. It's the work of Stephanie Pearl McPhee, also known as the Yarn Harlot.

As for Summer of Love, I had imagined that they were going to be tricky to knit, but they turned out to be quite straightforward and knit up in no time. I got behind working on Christmas presents and the thought of the holidays looming in front of us has made it clear that I'm going to continue to be behind. Oh, well. Hope those who are lucky enough to receive handknit presents are suitably grateful! I'll show some of those after the holidays. No family spoilers here!
