Happy socks

These are happy socks in more ways than one.

I'm so happy with the matched stripes!

I’m so happy with the matched stripes!

The colour palette is very spring like and makes me hopeful that soon Spring will arrive in more than name.

Also, they are knitted in Wendy Happy 4ply.  The yarn is 75% bamboo and 25% nylon and have been a delightfully squishy knit.  A bit splitty, yes, but not annoyingly so.  And a bit prone to tangle in the ball, but sorting that out is work for husbands…or mine at least, he’s got far more patience with these things than I.

Last but not least, a new pair of socks always puts a smile on his face, and that makes me happy too.

See…happy socks indeed!

    These are lovely!
    I like knitting self pattening yarn in socks as for the second one you just follow the pattern, no measuring (well as long as you started in the same place in the yarn as the first sock…)

    • It’s the first time I’ve done socks like this and loved that all you had to do was hold the one on the needles against the one that was finished and you could see exactly where you’re up to. Genius!

    Fantastic stripe matching! That’s a pretty impressive thing when it comes to sock knitting!

    • Thank you *takes a bow*. I did allow myself a little pat on the back. And, amazingly, he noticed how well matched the stripes are and is really chuffed!

  4. Oh, what lovely socks. They do look happy the yarn is such nice Spring colours. Your stripes are brilliant. x

    Such lovely colours! Here’s to spring getting here soon… so far it’s MIA!

  8. Happy socks indeed. I need to avoid making socks because I would end up doing no sewing at all. LOL!
