Pink Fluffy Socks



















I finished them! The pattern I used was from the book ‘One Skein’ by Leigh Radford and these are the ‘cable footies’. I really enjoyed doing the shaping on the heels and toes. I also used the long circular kneedle method rather than using four needles because I knit loosely and I just know I would have had slipping kneedles and wouldn’t have finished them! Hurrah…now Barry hold out your arms…yes, like than, no not like that, silly….right, now I can wind my beautiful skeins of yarns into delicious fat balls to make into my next pair of socks. Watch this space!!

I dye luxurious fibre blends for spinners and felters, and sew beautiful bags, project bags and needle/hook organisers to a very high standard, using designer fabrics and then I photograph them!

    They’re beautiful! I really must get that book. Did you do Magic loop with the needle? I’ve got a booklet to show me how but have never sat down to do it.

    Lovely pink socks! My feet are quite envious.Sounds to me, darling, you need a swift….unless Barry really enjoys holding the skeins while you wind…
