Zauberball Socks

Just when you thought it was safe to peep over the parapet…here are more unblogged socks from last year.

I promise this is the last of the pairs I made for the hubby, but Miss Minx has agreed to pose for photos at the weekend if we can squeeze it in.  Her socks are much cuter!

However, these aren’t too shabby, if we squint and ignore the mismatching.  This was the last ball of sock yarn in my stash and I swear I’m only buying either plain or matching stripes going forwards.

Thankfully the colours in this yarn are so lovely all is forgiven.

The fact that it makes the most perfect stitches also helps!

It now feels rather odd not to be knitting socks.  Hubby had so many that over Christmas he went all Marie Kondo on his sock drawer.  It’s now only full of socks that spark joy.  Thankfully there are plenty, which leaves me free to knit other things.

So I’m swatching for a sweater for me.

And casting on these little beauties for Miss Minx for Easter.

If you’ve never come across Little Cotton Rabbits’ delightful animals before, go, check them out.  They are just beautiful!

    Great socks!
    I had seen the Little Cotton Rabbits site but avoid looking as I have no-one to make those gorgeous toys for. I’m sure Button will love them 😃

      LCR is addictive. I made a rabbit for a friend’s daughter a couple of years ago but haven’t made anything for Button. Bad mummy!

      You could always make some little friends for your sewing room….just saying! 😉

    I think everybody should only wear socks ‘that spark joy’ – I’m sure it would make for a better world 😉

  3. What absolutely stunning socks. The colours are gorgeous together. Those little knitted toys are so cute. I had a look at the pattern…. 14 hours to knit up! They must be very complicated. 🙂 Xx

      Not too complicated. Just a bit fiddly. The most work is the sewing up and stuffing! The knitting is quite delightful! xx
