hearth and home

i washed spicy's alpaca bed socks last night. they are barely recognizable as socks anymore. super fuzzy and pilly and the pattern is completely obscured. i think it's time to make him a new pair of bed socks.
Log Cabin Socks
it's a fairly rare occurrence for me to knit a pattern more than once. these log cabin socks (rav) from handknit holidays are a keeper. so cozy and thick and stretchy. i want a pair. i might have to knit them a third time. i'm using knitpicks swish worsted in dark navy and #4 options. the yarn is a bit splitty with the metal needles but otherwise it's very nice. i'm making the larger size.
