SOCK LOVE.....



It's all about the socks again. I haven't been in such a 'sock' place for a long time, but let's stay with the hygge and keep those little red 2.5 DPNs smoking! These are the completed pair of Pheasant Socks, which will be a Christmas gift. The yarn is from the WYS Signature 4ply, 'British Birds' range, in 'pheasant' colour way with a 'nutmeg' heel and toe. The yarn isn't the softest and I've yet to see how it works after a couple of washes, but the subtle colour mixes are just gorgeous. I've used Rachel Coopey's 'Dave' pattern again, as it just works!


Of course, the next colour way in the range was then ready to go. These will also be a Christmas gift! The colour way this time is 'mallard' with a 'juniper' heel. Such relaxing stripey knitting!


Let's hope the sock love continues, as I still have another pair or two to complete before the big day!

I live in West Yorkshire, about 10 miles from the West Yorkshire Spinners mill, so you can imagine my fury when I came home to discover my local yarn shop has turned into my local sewing shop and no longer stocks this lovely product or much else in the way of wool. It was 10 minutes walk to yarn heaven, I am devastated but delighted that you've discovered the delights of these colourful socks. So far mine are wearing well.

You are definitely on a sock-knitting frenzy right now! Love these socks with the contrast heels and toes. Have a good week. xx

What a gorgeous pairr, the other one looks great already. I just finished a pair, red and white stripes (Christmassy I know, but actually for my brother-in-law who is a Sydney Swans supporter and those are their colours)
