These I knitted whilst in Melbourne earlier this year with sister Sue – Heritage Sock Yarn in the Lotus pattern from my favourite Joy of Sox book. Dark Plum and lacy – difficult to photograph, but lovely to wear.IMG_3783



IMG_3779OK, so it’s been a while, but I have been producing. Managed more socks this year than ever before and have more skeins to make more socks when the weather cools down again. Loving knitting socks! Jaywalker in a beautifully soft superwash merino and polyamide yarn by Alegria. Would have to be one of the most comfortable pairs I have made yet.

The easiest pair of socks I have knitted! Simple Skyp Socks by Adrienne Ku off Ravelry in Naturally’s Waikiwi Prints of merino, nylon, alpaca and possum. Fit beautifully, and what a dream to knit. I was taught to knit toe-up socks and always struggled with the heels, procrastinating for ages before I plunged into doing them – with this pattern I was past the heel before I realised. What a revelation in my sock-knitting journey.
