Please note that I edited in a very special treat — a special discount code from Dyeabolical! — about one hour after originally posting this. Don’t miss out!
One of the most popular patterns right from the get-go in the Socks with Sarah KAL was Hermione’s Everyday Socks. After reading the reviews that poured in on the Ravelry thread — everyone raving about how addictive the pattern is, how quickly they were knitting through it, and overall how enjoyable it was to knit — I decided I really needed to give it a try.
I cruised through my stash a bit and finally settled on this skein:
While I’ve spun with Dyeabolical fibers before, this was my first time knitting with yarn from this fantastic little shop. I absolutely adore that the vast majority of my purchases from this shop are “made to order.” I pick the color & base, submit the order, and within a few weeks I have exactly what I want in my hands. No mad rushing for updates, I just take my time and order exactly what I want. Turnaround times area always very prompt and the service is super friendly. Love. This. Shop.
And as for how it worked out with the Hermione’s Everyday Socks, well, I am kind of a big fan…
Overall, beautiful socks. Just beautiful. And the pattern is very well done & easy to follow (and free, too!).
I kind of have my eye on the CMY colorway — so wild & vibrant — and Queen’s Tea which is such a nice neutral. First though, I should probably knit through what I have in my stash. They are pretty lovely, too.
