Some Socks

I don’t think I’ve posted these two pairs of socks that I finished.  They were for my friend Browne.  He loves bright colours and hand knit socks.

I used some left over turquoise yarn for the cuffs, heels and toes.  I am always worried about running out of yarn when I’m making bigger men’s sizes, so often use the contrasting colour for cuff, toes, for sure.

Ravelry project page is here. I finished them so I could take them with me on my last trip out to Vancouver.  So bright and happy!

The other pair I had been working on were made with Biscotte and Cie “bis-sock” yarn in the Dark Side colourway.  The contrasting cuff/toe were with some left over Sweet Georgia Yarn Tough Love sock yarn.  They turned out so nice!

Biscotte & Cie “Bis-sock” in Dark Side colourway

Ravelry project page is here.  The colourway was inspired by the Pink Floyd album “Dark Side of the Moon”.  The cover image is a prism on a dark background.

I’ve been really busy lately with the gym, other fitness events, gardening and of course our new baby girl.  I have been working on a sweater I started a few months ago, for me, called the Lionheart Pullover.  I also have been working on my charity hats.  But as always, I’m itching to get another pair of socks on the go.
