I was spinning yesterday and decided to go to the knitting circle in the afternoon. How nice it was to visit with everybody again. But I realized before I went, that I only had one pair of socks to work on and it was not in a good place for group knitting.
Off I went to pickup a bit of yarn and some needles. I started my Christmas shopping too, so it was an all round good stop.
And then, over a bite to eat, I had to pick a pattern. I went with Nutkin.
Nutkin is a really nice textural pattern, one of the most knit sock patterns on Ravelry. And I am pretty pleased with my version too.
It's a shorter than average sock for the pattern, but that is what works for me. I've switched lots up on it. Ribbed cuff instead of a fussy one. Heel flap heel. Still for all its differences, it is the heart of a Nutkin.
