Hungry for Socks

I love socks.


I love knitting socks.

Any kind is alright by me. Vanilla, lace, cabled, entrelac (when I am feeling brave), colour work (ok, maybe not intarsia, but don’t tell anyone!), mini socks, welly socks and everything in between.

What I love most of all is knitting a sock in a great yarn, in a great pattern.
It makes me happy.
I cast on the Dawlish socks by Rachel Coopey last weekend, with Bat’at Hand Dyed 4ply yarn in the most amazing colour.

Now, I have reviewed this yarn before, and I really hope I used words like

egg yolk


…ok, maybe not cheese, but I had a real hankering for an omelette after knitting a while.

The repeats are short, there’s no risk of pooling and the twist is perfect for giving me nice, crisp cables – which is important on such a geometric pattern.

I’m throwing Caution to the Wind and cabling without a cable needle too.
I’m just that adventurous!

I think it’s safe to say that I am having fun working this pattern in this yarn. They were meant for each other. Every time I find a Perfect Match, I feel justified in having a stash.

It’s not hoarding.
It’s a Dating Agency for Yarn.

Got to dash – my omelette is ready!

With love,
