I love these socks. A lot. So much that I went outside in 93 degree weather (did I mention it was 8:30 at night) to take these pictures.
The pattern is the Hermione’s Everyday Socks pattern from the lovely Dreams in Fiber. I apologize for the wonky color, I couldn’t adjust the pictures to get the true hue without distorting the rest of the picture. I used Cascade Heritage Paints number 9770 and even the website doesn’t show how dark and lovely it is properly.
Like Hermione I’ve got a big summer reading list planned. I just cracked open Coop and am hoping to get my hands on Barnheart and Radical Homemaking sometime soon. I’m finishing up Unconditional Parenting, but to be honest I can take it or leave it – there are somethings she brings up that I don’t agree with 100% and most of her “unconditional parenting” approaches seem to be a rehash of most attachment parenting techniques, just applied to old kids so it’s nothing too new. Win some, lose some.
I also have my next big craft project started, which came in the mail the day after I finished Hermione
I’ve got a long ways to go and have a September deadline for this one!
