More Socks!!

I wish I knew why I love socks so much. They are so fun to knit, and just a treat to have on my little feet. 😉

These are Mona, my second pair of socks from Cookie A.’s book Knit.Sock.Love. They are knit from Panda Cotton in colourway Powder Blue. It was a fairly straightforward pattern, but I really didn’t enjoy all the twisted knit stitches.

I’m now working on BFF, the next sock in the book. This time the yarn is Dye-Version’s Bamboo Stetch Sock in colourway Candy Apple. It is a very squishy yarn, and the cables show up much better than I expected. I’ll be reversing the direction of the cables for the second sock because I like symmetry.

Unfortunately, it looks like the KAL for the Knit.Sock.Love. book that I was taking part in has collapsed, but I’m hopping to continue on with it myself. It isn’t like I don’t have a pile of sock patterns, but I like having a plan to follow.

    Terrific socks! I have a crochet sock book I’ve been wanting to tackle. Sorry about your KAL, but I’m sure you’ll do fine without a plan.
