It would appear that this is the year of patterned socks here at Carole Knits. I say that because I just finished my 5th pair of socks for 2012 and they are not a pair of picot edge socks. In fact, I have only knit 1 pair of picot socks so far this year. I’m not sure why but I’m going with it and enjoying the process.
Anyway, these are No Purl Monkeys and I made the mistake of leaving them on the dining room table. I didn’t really think it was a mistake, they were just sitting there waiting to be photographed. And then Hannah moved home and saw them and asked if she could have them. What could I say, right?
The yarn, because I know you will ask, is Yarn Pirate Superwash BFL in the color Cicada. It pooled and striped in a way I did not anticipate but I like it just the same. I also really like the socks and had definitely planned on keeping them for myself. As it turns out, though, I don’t think they would have fit me since Hannah had to struggle a bit to get them on. She says it was meant to be.
I say she’s been home less than a week and she’s already stealing my socks. Sheesh.
