Petty Harbour Socks finished


I had just the toes on each sock left to do when we got home from our mini road trip up the Columbia Gorge, and I finished those this morning.


The pattern is Petty Harbour, with a type of broken rib stitch. They took me about a month to knit, but that was pretty scattered knitting. It is a very simple, fast pattern.

The yarn is Malabrigo sock, Zarzamora colorway. I used about 3/4ths of a skein, so around 330 yards.

I had to Kitchner the first sock’s toe twice – I lose the rhythm if anyone talks to me, which leaves holes.  For the second sock, I threatened all within striking range so I could do it without interruption. (Yeah, I’m a lot of fun to have around.)

Perfect fit, cushy, comfy yarn – and now it is time to hunt down another pattern to cast on.

    1. I saw a pendant once that had the steps of the Kitchner stitch engraved on it. I wish I’d gotten it to wear during those trying times.
