I've got the sock bug again!!
One of my knitting friends sent me two balls of this lovely sock yarn as she hasn't really the time to make socks and as a thank you I made her the pair above. She loved them...which made me so happy!
Me being me I can never stop at one pair and with all those gorgeous yarns to work with I had to cast on another pair immediately.
I bought some sock yarn from Black Sheep Wools sometime last year and it has been hidden away in my stash so all I had to do was decide on a pattern.
Browsing the numerous sock patterns on Ravelry I came across this lovely pattern by Adrienne Ku for these Simple SKYP Socks...pattern here
I really enjoyed making them and the only thing I did differently was to change the shaping of the toe section.
They are an easy knit which means I can catch up with my tv programmes whilst knitting. They don't require too much concentration and I would be happy to make them again.
Kemps Wools have some lovely sock wool on offer at the moment so I had to purchase a few balls for my next project......Boot Socks!
