Single Skein of Sock Yarn Swap!


My knitting group did a single skein of sock yarn project swap. My swapner, Regan, happens to have similar taste in colors as me so I was quite excited to knit for her. I found the perfect shade of orange in this Sweet Georgia Yarns BFL sock and went digging for patterns from there.


I kept coming back to Veyla by Ysolda Teague. It didn’t use my whole skein, but I couldn’t get the project and yarn pair out of my head so I decided to go with it. Knit on 3.25mm needles, the mitts are quick to make, and the pattern was extremely well written. It has some great small details like the method used to pick up stitches for the hands from the cuff, and the pattern was easy to follow even though I had a hard time memorizing the stitch pattern (I think it’s adapted from the same stitch pattern as the one I modified for Agatha. Both patterns make different changes to the original so I kept having to reference the pattern).


I’m really pleased with how these turned out, and Regan seems to like them. I think I might make my own pair sometime in the future but without the eyelet increases on the thumb. They’re a nice detail, but they seem like a little too much for my taste. I’d be happy to work with the pattern again. It was fun to knit.
