Finished socks

Happy Monday lovely readers!

I hope you’ve had a great weekend filled with good food and craft. I just realised that I forgot to share my last two pairs of socks with you.

My husband’s Aunty recently contacted me and asked if I could make her and her husband a pair of socks each. Considering I’ve been way behind with my sock knitting goal and that I knew I was going to see her when I went to Brisbane, I thought it would be a great challenge. What I learnt from that is that I can indeed knit a pair of vanilla socks in a week, but I would probably not do that again as I didn’t have any time to do other craft during this time.

This pair was for her, as she mentioned she liked the blue colour but didn’t want very dark colours mixed in. This was a breeze to work with and went quite fast as it was a size 9.

A bit more tricky, these were size 13 and seemed to take forever but I really liked finishing them, especially considering I managed to match them quite well!

My next pair might be a pair for baby, I need to see if I can still use my DPNs, which I haven’t used since I’ve discovered I could knit socks on short circulars. I think I might also not bother with a heel, and just make him tube socks that would hopefully last him a bit longer.

I hope you all have a wonderful week!
