Wollmeise socks designed by Monica Jines. Pattern can be found compliments of Sheri at The Loopy Ewe.
These socks were knitted from the toe up with a waste yarn cast on. A Close Up The Yarn is Mountain Colors Bearfoot and the colour is Meadow Colour of the fullsize socks is more accurate Photos can be enlarged. I just love bearfoot which is a wool/mohair combination. They feel so nice and warm on my feet.
Now Confession time. The ones above have been finished for a little while I had just not finished sewing the threads in or photographed.
The sock below is at the moment only one sock. I have another pair of socks tempting me and I need to hurry up and cast on sock 2 so that I am at least at the beginning.
Pattern is Nancy Bush’s Copper Penny Socks from Knitting Socks with Hand-Painted Yarns and the yarn is Mountain Colors Crazyfoot in Sandstone. I just love the stitch definition this yarn gives. The yarn was won from the Mountain colours blog so that I could test knit.
This sock was knit from the toe up using Judy’s Magic cast on. I am a convert. Much prefer to knit from the toe up. This sock is a little long but as I had already frogged back down to the toe once because I did not like the way the yarn was knitting up in one pattern I was not going to undo again!
Tonight I made Anne’s Scottish Parkin and it is yummy. Treacle rich and oaty. Perfect Winter treat with coffee. Holiday Monday tomorrow :-) Have a great Quilty or Knitty Day All Cheers Lynne
