FO Friday!

I have a finished object! This is the first pair of socks I finished in a long time, and I am in love with them! The pattern is Business Casual and it is a free pattern. It is a very well written, easy to follow pattern and I recommend it highly.

I used some Cakewalk yarn I had in my stash. It is the Walk base, in the colorway Grantia. This colorway has been discontinued.

I have not knit a pair of socks with the Walk base before, but it will not be the last. It is a delightful two ply and they are so squishy! I never want to take them off :-)

For as simple as this pattern is, I did have some trouble with it. It was my fault -- I get over excited sometimes and stop using my brain. But I fixed it, and my flubs don't show, much :-) I used this technique to work the traveling stitches. It is super easy and so fast! Much faster than working the stitch like a cable. Twisted stitches are a great skill to have.  The socks on my banner, my Farmer McGregor socks, also use twisted stitches.

Have a great weekend! Happy knitting :-)

Linking up with Tamis Amis
