FO Friday......Crocus Socks.

 

Hello my friends, wow, it's Friday again, they seem to roll round pretty quick and can you believe it's already May!!!!! It's a three day weekend here in the UK as we have May Bank Holiday on Monday, I hope the weather stays fine so we can get out and about.

I'm back today to show you my finished Crocus Socks by Wendy D. Johnson, they are from the book Toe Up Socks for Everybody. I highly recommend this book, it has some fab sock patterns, mostly ladies but some for kids and men.

I used A Fine Fish Yarns 4ply sock yarn, she is an indie dyer that I follow in IG, it's a great yarn to knit with and I love the colours. This is my first time using it but I think it will be quite hard wearing, which is always good for socks.

I love the lace pattern and they fit perfectly, my usual cast on for socks are 64 or 68 stitches on 2.25mm needles. I used DPNs for the second time now and though they are fiddly at first, I really like using them and will probably be my first choice from now on. I've got the Knit Pro Symfonie wood which I like but I've just bought some Knit Pro Karbonz which I really, really like, I will definitely buying more.

Check out Tami's blog for more Finished Objects, this week. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend and see you next week!!!

*breaking news*

I've just seen that I'm Crafter of the Week on the Make It Sewcial, hosted by Allison Sadler from The People Shop, for these socks. Every Monday on Instagram, she asks us to share what we creating, it's full of inspiration, with some amazing, talented people on there, so I feel very honored that I got picked.

How pretty and comfy they seem! I was actually just thinking about putting on some socks, for my feet are getting cold, but mine aren't nearly as lovely as yours Deb ;-) Ira x
