I have extremely happy feet right now. I've finished two pairs of socks and my feet have a great big grin on them! There is nothing nicer than snuggling your toes into a brand new pair of handknit socks! The first pair is my own pattern, 'It's Seagull o'clock' and the main yarn is a skein from Burrow & Soar. I bought two skeins last year and ended up using one as a prize in my raffles. The person who won that particular prize was Spinthrift and she decided to knit my Seagulls socks. She added some minis as contrast cuffs, heels and toes, and when I saw the photo that she'd posted on Ravelry, I loved them so much that she very kindly sent me the leftovers of the minis for my own pair. It's nice knowing that I have a sock twin! Thank you Jane! If you'd like to knit a pair yourself, you can buy a copy of my pattern from Ravelry here.
The second pair is a plain vanilla sock where the beautiful yarn is allowed to show itself off - no other pattern needed! The yarn is from The Yarn Badger and is called 'Double Rainbow'. It's incredibly soft and has silver stellina in it for extra twinkly toes! I'm taking part in the Rainbow Sock Chronicles this year which is being run by Lay Family Yarn and Sew Sweet Violet. But instead of knitting a pair each month just one colour of the rainbow, I'm going with ALL the rainbow colours! I've already cast on my next pair of rainbow socks and I'll share progress photos soon. Take care and stay safe. xxx
