happy feet

Wednesday, April 20, 2016

These are most definitely the happiest socks I have ever made.  They truly make me smile.  
It took me about 10 tries to get the cast on just right so that the stripes added up.  But finally... It worked.
Oh, did I mention it took me a couple of months to get this yarn because of how quickly they sell out.   They update on Thursdays and sell out pretty quickly, so if you're looking to make a pair, set your alarm!  (That's what I finally did.)

Pattern: Vanilla Latte Socks omitting the stitch pattern with a Slip Stitch Heel
Yarn:  Trailing Clouds - Mind the Gap
Needles: Size US 2
Made for:  Libby's happy feet

    run to get that yarn. I know what knitters are like.
    Well done on lining the colours up, that is tricky!!
    Cheers, Anita.

  3. PS. I forgot to mention that I tried the Chunky Knit Beanie on your blog and it looks amazing!!!! I'm not a big fan of knitting with chunky yarn but someone had given me some ages ago and I thought I might knit up some beanies using it. So glad I did. Thanks heaps for the pattern.

  7. I may have to follow your idea of setting an alarm. I'm traveling to London this summer, after being there I know I'll want this yarn even more! Beautiful socks and photography, as always.
