Tea Time For Edgar

After a rough almost week I feel like things are back on track. Still haven't found a Tues/Thurs solution to the childcare problem but I've got my optimist hat on today so I know it'll work out just fine. I finally took some pics of finished projects before Little A got dropped off from her day-long trip over to Bainbridge with her grandparents.

I finished these socks while at Sock Summit and I have no idea why they took so long to knit up. I feel like I've got knitting scatterbrain lately. Could it be the 7 day work week? Perhaps.

Pattern: Tea Time by Das Bollwerk & Frau Mascha
Yarn: Kitchen Sink Dyeworks Merino Fine in "Edgar"
Needles: US #1 (2.25 mm)
Mods: I modified the cuff ribbing to flow seamlessly into the cable panels and continued the heel cable down into the heel flap with a reinforced heel on the remainder of the flap stitches. Regular old wedge toe. I could have knit these on a #1.5 needle as they're very dense but I went with the #1 since there's no nylon in this particular yarn base. They're handsome socks that I think would be well suited for a man's sock.


  1. Those cables look fantastic :) I haven't tried any socks with an actual pattern yet, but looking at gorgeous ones like these makes me think it's about time I tried!

  2. You are so cool. i wish i could knit... i think I'll just admire your handiwork!
