It’s been a little while since I started the Riverbed Socks for Little P, and they are…paused. I turned probably my best heel yet, went away for a week and promptly forgot where I was in the pattern. Unfortunately I don’t have the knitting prowess (read patience) to work out 100% where I am, so these may become un-knitted very soon. However…
I have had a beautiful skein of Easy Knits Oh Em Gee (great name) in my stash for a while, and at a recent charity auction run by Stannary Hash House Harriers I offered to make someone a badly knitted pair of socks. I didn’t intend to knit them badly, but I had to cover myself, just in case they thought I was some form of knitting prodigy. Anyway, someone actually bid, a whole £20! In total over £1,000 was raised, though not all through the promise of socks.
These socks use a very, very simple toe-up afterthought heel pattern which can be found here. I like toe-up patterns as I find them much easier to work with as the hard work happens first so I’m less likely to lose interest!

On a side note, Mr PJ now feels he is an (and I quote) “Amateur sock-tographer” and that he should be able to get a feature of his work in some sort of sock-azine…
