Friday Harbor

The Friday Harbor socks are done! I'm really pleased with how they turned out and can't wait to wear them. I knit them in Mountain Colors Weavers Wool Quarters in alpine, using US 2 double points.

Here is a close look at the heel. And the cuff, which I had to do twice on the first sock, but looks good so it was worth it.

And finally, the toe. I'm Kitchener-challenged, so even though I like a more rounded toe, this worked well for me.

Bring on the next KOTR knit-along!

It's always nice to meet someone else who isn't a kitchener fan;-)

Your Friday Harbors are great, too. I'm really enjoying the pattern--enough going on to keep you interested but not so you make too many mistakes. The yarn is lovely too. My last pair of socks were in your colorway.
I'm in complete agreement about Kitchener.

Great job on your Friday Harbor Socks! I was so glad to get mine done, too. I am hoping the next KOTR sock will not be quite as difficult.

Your socks look fantastic! I finished my Friday Harbor socks today, but probably won't post a pic until tomorrow when they are dry (and hopefully we have some sunshine.)

I have a favorite toe that doesn't require kitchener and is a round toe. Ironically I learned to do this toe after I finally mastered kitchener.

I did the toe as written for the Friday Harbor socks, and I wish I had used the modified round toe I normally use.

Email me if you are interested in the directions.

Your socks are gorgeous. I have that book too and that's one of my favorite patterns from it.
I'm sorry to hear about your cousin's son. That's so sad.
