Hedera

Quick post today. You get the bare minimum. I apologize for the bad pic and lack of links. My aunt passed away last night so it is a little bit crazy around here.

I finished my Hedera socks this weekend. This pattern is so nice. Easy to memorize, great looking and a fast knit for most people.

I did shorten the heel flap, it seemed way too long in the original pattern. I used two skeins of Koigu on size 1 Addis. Go ahead, make yourself a pair. I will make the knee-high version (Sodera) eventually, but I think I will wait until I have my new Knitpicks circulars. It will be easier and faster with sharper points.

I am working on another UFO. I thought I would quick finish some socks up, until I found a bonk-to-the-side-of-the-head-stupid mistake on them. Yeah, you won't even believe this one!
