I call these basic after thought heel socks “Cabin Fever” because they were knit up during one of the multiple snowstorms we’ve experienced here in Boston in the last month. It’s been brutal, but a great opportunity to sit in and knit.
I used two skeins of Knit Picks Felici Fingering in the rustic cabin colorway, hence the association, as well, with cabin fever. I used little bits of Alchemy Yarns of Transformation Juniper in the vintage jade colorway (leftover from my Leah’s Lovely Cardigan, which I still haven’t taken proper snaps of) for the heels and toes, because I think there’s nothing better than different pops of color in socks.
These were gifted to my guy for Valentine’s Day this year. I’m incredibly pleased with the finished result and want to dive back into the stockpile of felici to knit a few more pairs.
