It’s been over three months since I last shared a proper FO post. And it’s been over five* years since I finished a pair of socks for myself. So yes, all the exclamation points!!!
These are the Churchmouse Basic Socks, knit in Cascade Heritage Prints.
This was my first time using self-striping yarn and I must say – it’s fun! Even when the stripes don’t match.
I’d forgotten how nice hand knit socks feel…and fit.
I bought the yarn when we were in Beaufort last spring; sadly, my LYS doesn’t carry it. But we’ll be going to Beaufort again in April. Maybe I’ll even get the stripes to match on my next pair.
*September 2010 to be exact. I was surprised it had been that long, but I think my nearly empty sock drawer confirms it.

Your socks are so fun and I love, love, the colors! My hands don't do well with sock sized yarn, but my sock drawer is saying I need to try again.
There is something about purple and green that says spring to me, and these are wonderful spring socks. I do like your clever plan to get more sock yarn in Beaufort!
Love purple & green, too — think spring & summer flowers. Non-matching stripes is part of the fun. I should knit more socks; after all, how many shawls & scarves do I need?!
Socks are definitely on my list of things I want to learn to knit this year. I love these – such great colors!
Those are just charming socks, Mary! (Also – matching stripes are overrated.) It's been about that long for me and socks, too. It's time, though. My sock drawer is looking pretty bedraggled. . .
Love these, can't wait to visit the shop and get some self-stripping yarn.
