FO - Hedera Socks in Malabrigo Sock Yarn
It may have taken me two months to finish my last project, but it only took 12 days for me to complete Hedera Socks, by Cookie A!


You guys…this was such a super-easy pattern, that had I not been obsessed with Bejeweled Blitz, I probably could have finished in a week.


The yarn is the Malabrigo Sock yarn I purchased on my birthday. The colorway is #803, Ochre. It is a medium mustard yellow – not too bright. The yarn is kettle dyed pure superwash merino wool, so it’s soft but machine washable in cold water (dry flat). I LOVED knitting with it!!!


I knit this pair on size 1 1/2 needles, and it only took 70 grams of yarn…not quite the entire hank.


The pattern was soooooo easy! I quickly had it memorized and FLEW through the rounds. I completed half of the first sock in one afternoon, that’s how much of a quick knit it is.


The socks and I had a photo session all by our lonesome selves…everyone else was out. Thank goodness for the delayed timing feature on my camera! I hope you’ll forgive me as I indulge in showing off a few more pictures. I think I earned the right given that I suffered through the humidity just to get them!

They look great. I picked up some Malabrigo sock yarn but now I'm curious if its superwash or not. I'll have to check.

Yes, it is superwash. It's machine washable, cold water only, and lay flat to dry.

They're just big, and I know how to pose them! I get lots of practice with all of the socks I make!

Thanks!!!
