Ravelry tells me I started these socks on September 12, so I am super pleased to get them off the needles.


(Yes I know they don’t match. Apparently the yarn was not all the same colorway. I didn’t buy it; I just worked with what I had.)

Pattern: It’s a toe-up sock with Wendy Johnson’s gusseted heel. Wedge toe.
Yarn: Sidar Crofter DK, three skeins
Needles: US 2/2.75 mm


Sooooooocks. I love socks. I love handknit socks. These are pretty fabulous. I love long socks. There isn’t too terribly much to say about them other then they are very long and I like them. I don’t know much about the yarn, but it’s 60% acrylic, so we’ll see how it wears. I have other socks mainly composed of acrylic that I’ve purchased and they’re not too bad. So we’ll see.


In fandom news, I am on book 7 of the Star Wars X Wing series. I just today started Solo Command, the third Wraith Squadon book. I kind of love it. It’s super fun. After this is the Courtship of Princess Leia because I have fallen HARD for the Star Wars extended universe. Expect crafts about it. And, of course, you can follow my progress here

Also, I signed up for another swap. This one is Sherlock-themed, but nothing with that will happen for a while. I’m trying to do another round of OWS but I’m not sure what’s happening there.

In other knitting, I recently purchased this ebook and OMG LOVE. It’s so pretty. I’ve already cast on for the Parquet Underbust Corset and I plan to make like nine other things. I’m feeling a bit of cast on mania, but I’m trying to curb it. I’m thinking of ripping the Pfeiffer Falls scarf I started ages ago and working the Legacy Frock Coat in the scrummy worsted cashmere.
