A new pair of socks for the new year.
Simple Stockinette Socks
Short-Row Heels and Toes
Worked on 56 Stitches
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug, Easy Care 100% Merino
Needles: US 1 1/2 (2.5 mm) DPNs
This yarn was very fun to knit with. The bright bursts of rich color intermingled with sage green kept stockinette stitch fresh and entertaining.
One hank of Jitterbug is enough for a simple pair of socks, but if you prefer a stitch pattern that uses more yarn, you better buy two hanks. A 100 gram hank is approximately 267 meters.
Since this yarn is hand dyed, it is recommended to work 2-4 rows from two different hanks or from two ends of one, carrying the yarn up the side. This will help to achieve an even color effect. I didn't do this and you might be able to tell that one of the socks has fewer bursts of color than the other. It's a subtle difference though and I'm happy with them like they are.
Have a great weekend!
