Project: Hannah Socks
Pattern: Petty Harbour, by Rayna Curtis (free on Ravelry)
Yarn: Ancient Arts Fibre Craft Superwash Wool Fingering Sock; colorway, Orange Tabby
Needles: US 1
Modifications: I made the leg a bit longer than indicated in the pattern.
Notes: I love these socks! I have named them "Hannah Socks" because when Ancient Fibre Arts first introduced their Meow Collection, I bought a skein for each kitty we had at the time. And we had a cream-orange tabby named Hannah. The yarn is great to knit with, and has lovely stitch definition. The Petty Harbour pattern is fun to knit - it has enough interest to make you pay attention, but is not overly involved and is easy to memorize. I recommend it if you are a sock knitter.
So this pair is happily tucked away in my Box o' Socks, ready to surprise me all over again in 2018. Since I had started another pair before these that were going along well until the yarn exploded and could not be untangled, I'm a pair behind on my goal of 12 pairs for myself. Which is kinda frustrating, but then again, I'm doing it informally and for fun, so there's actually no real pressure.
I see also that now Ancient Arts Fibre Craft has not just the Meow Collection, but the Woof Collection. Which means I may have to take a look and buy some yarn in honor of our Dug. :-)
Seriously though, this yarn and this pattern were both well worth the time to knit! You should give them a try.
