Ooh I do love finishing a project. There's a sense of achievement that just makes me really happy. The added bonus is that I'm pleased with the outcome. And what's not to be pleased with... gotta love a cosy pair of handknit socks that have such a jolly vibe to them.
The yarn was some Vesper odds and ends that I purchased from a Ravelry member. I really enjoyed chopping and changing between the different colour schemes that I'd been able to get hold of. (Although weaving in the ends was a pain!) The pattern was an adapted version of my basic sock pattern. This time with a size 2 needle to suit this skinny sock yarn. I cast on a more stitches than my basic pattern to accommodate the smaller needle size - 75 stitches. The rib is a simple K4, P1 repetition.
Not a lot else to tell you about these. Except little miss has taken a shining to them and keeps telling me they are her socks. I have enough odds and ends that I could probably whip out a toddler sized pair. (I need more hours in a day!)
Hope you are having a good week,
