I wanted to get some super cute pictures of me and my poppet modelling our matching socks. I managed to take a few while she was busy nursing her baby, she must be used to me clicking my camera around all the time and is certainly non-plussed!
The sock knitting bug hasn't left, although I don't have any on the needles at the moment I am itching to cast some on. It's the Waterlily that is holding me back, still a challenge, BUT I WILL NOT GIVE UP! I can't wait for the day when I can give you a ta-dah post for that.
The yarn used for these socks is Regia 4-fadig Color 05025 and I got it from Hobbycraft. You need 2 x 50g balls for a pair of adult socks, but there is enough for a toddler pair too, so I couldn't resist making some mini ones. I love the colours in this yarn, it's fun to make as you knit through with lots of different colour stitches. The pretty shades mean they have a summery feel to them, even though they are nice and warm, so it felt right to make them ankle length.
'till next time...
