Pattern: Favorite Socks, by Voolenvine
Yarn: Knit Picks Felici in the colorway Jingle, 52 grams/approximately 266.7 yards
Timeline: 11.14.14 – ???
Needles: US size 0
Size: 64 stitches
My Modifications: I did an afterthought heel to preserve the striping. I learned a lot from my last pair of socks. I didn’t micromanage the yarn, and that did lead to a quirky strip on one of the heels, but I don’t care! I also decreased for the heel and then knitted additional plain rounds to try and round it out a bit more. They’re not perfect, but I’m getting there more and more with each pair!
Opinions: Well, so far I’m in the Felici camp. I bought this yarn when I heard it was discontinued, and what a pleasure to knit with! I can’t speak to the sturdiness or washability of the yarn, but it was an enjoyable experience and it was fun to work with self-striping! Would buy again (and did, at the sale, but that’s another blog post …).
