Started on January 12 and two weeks later… a pair of finished socks. It was like I was a knitting fiend. I couldn’t put these down. Sock knitting is relaxing to me. And I think that when things get busy I need to have a pair of socks to knit on to unwind from the day. Nearly every evening these were in my hands.
The yarn was frogged from another pair of socks that were a wee bit too big and I had only worn a couple of times. But I didn’t quite have enough to finish the toes. So a little leftover yarn from another pair was used to finish them off. The leftover yarn has a touch of gold running through it and so my husband started calling them Gold Toes.
Pattern ~ Ariel by Debbie O’Neill from the book Sock Club
Yarn ~ Sundara and Lorna’s Laces
Needles ~ 2.25mm
There’s just something about having a freshly knit pair of socks to wear…
