CUNNING FOLK SOCKS!
Yay! Look at these little beauties! Super speedy sock completion, especially as I have completed them during term-time. The super soft stripes yarn made for pretty addictive knitting.
This was my Christmas gift yarn from Josiekitten; Opulence Sock from the American KnitCircus Yarns. It's a fabulous blend of merino, cashmere and a little nylon for strengthening.
I used my favourite plain sock pattern from the Yarn Harlot to really show off the stripes and made the leg one inch longer, in order to maximise the graduated colour changes. I guess I would have arrived at almost solid green if my feet had been giant size!!!
