Summer Sock Club — July Socks Finished!

We’ve been plugging away over in the Feel Good Yarn Co Summer Sock Club this past month and it’s been such a bright, fun month indeed. For me, as soon as I saw the pattern, its sizing, and the colorway…

img_3943I had no choice but to knit these socks for my daughter. She’s big enough now to be able to wear a ladies small in a lot of sock patterns and the small for Kate Atherley‘s Summer Morning Socks — July’s club pattern — was just perfect for her.

I don’t normally work lacey patterns for socks, so this was an extra fun treat.

img_4025I knit the first sock up nice and quickly and found the lace patterning really fun.

The second sock — yes, I flew through that, too. Most of the WIP photos look like this though…

And that type of photo, so doesn’t do this justice.

As I knit around and around, the pressure to finish put on me by my daughter was incredible — she was so anxious to get to this point.

img_4104You might not believe how excited she was to get these on today.

img_4106Needless to say, three hours later and they haven’t come off.

img_4105The fit is great on her. As predicted by the pattern, they are just a smidge snug getting them on — perfect considering I know the SilverSpun Sock will comfortably stretch just enough with wear for a perfect fit.

One more month to go in this super fun club — remember that if you’re knitting along that sharing your progress and FOs in the Ravelry group will put you in the drawing for a couple fantastic prizes at the end of the summer! I hope you’ll pop in and show us what you’ve been knitting!

Now…what will August bring? I can’t wait to find out!
