My Hederas

Yarn: Wildfoote Luxury Sock Yarn (75% Washable Wool/25% Nylon), Colorway SY-42 Mistletoe
Pattern: Hedera, by Cookie A.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments: I made the smaller size (60 st.) and am glad I did. They looked skimpy before blocking, but blocked out quite nicely.

Before blocking:
And after blocking:
Also shown is the Verona shawl in progress. The colors on both projects--which I love--are close enough to be worn together, especially since they will be worn on the north and south parts of a person (me). A camera battery issue prohibited me from taking shots of the socks on my feet, so I'll try to get those posted tomorrow.

The Hedera (the word translated: ivy) pattern is not difficult, although it looks complicated. The heel part seemed endless. I may not be a budding lace knitter as I was relieved to be done with these socks.

The Judge thinks they are beautiful, and that's the final verdict.

Beauty-ous socks! I like the soft green color. That pattern is in my Someday File. I also think my lace capabilities are limited to socks only. I cannot see myself ever doing a shawl.

Lovely! I've knit that pattern before and loved it but I always use the heel pattern I first learned. I figure if it ain't broke, don't fix it. :-)

I agree with the judge - your Hederas are gorgeous. Are you a member of the Ravelry CookieA Group which is knitting them?

Love the Hederas! I am not one to block socks, but it really helped with that lace pattern, didn't it?

Beautiful color too!

Well, of course, the Judge is the arbiter of good taste. I must say I agree with him. Lovely color.
