This year’s daffodils have come and gone but their memory lives on in my Daffodil Socks.
This yarn, you may recall, was inspired by one of my Eye Candy Friday photos and dyed by the oh-so-talented Mama-E. I actually had the chance to show these socks to her when I was at Maryland Sheep & Wool and I’m really disappointed that I didn’t think to take a photo of her with them.
Nor did I take photos of them anywhere else but I have to say – these socks got around! Not only were they airport and airplane knitting but they were car knitting and town meeting knitting and sheep & wool festival knitting.
At New Hampshire Sheep & Wool they were even instructive knitting as Kathy knit her first successful rows of magic loop with these babies.
The yarn is soft and lovely to work with and the contrasting heels and toes are terrific.
It’s too warm now for wool socks but these will be a sweet reminder of my daffodils when autumn rolls around again.
