Winter Blue Socks

Winter Blue Socks

I fell head over heels in love with the yarn from November’s Yarn Bliss Box.  The colorway and box theme, Winter Wonderland, was just wonderful!   I knew I had to knit with this yarn right away and my mom’s birthday – and her love of blue – meant I had the perfect person to knit for!

Let me tell you more about these socks!

The Yarn

I’m really enjoying the Yarn Bliss Boxes from Speckled Finch Studios.  The themes and colorways are always such a delight!   Though I don’t usually gravitate to blues and greys, the Winter Wonderland colorway just fascinated me!  And I knew my mom would like it!

And because she loves blue, I decided to use some leftover blue yarn for the toes and cuffs.  I think this complemented the Winter Wonderland perfectly!

The Pattern 

Once again, I used my new favorite pattern from Kay, the Crazy Sock Lady, except that I used circular needles.  Using two needles, instead of three double-pointed needles, makes knitting socks so much faster!  I love it!

Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)

The idea to knit these for my mom’s  birthday was a bit last-minute so I spent a lot of time in January getting these finished.  And they were so much fun to knit!  I love speckled yarn of any kind, even subtle speckles like these!  

For the heel, I did my favorite Eye of Partridge, which is just so lovely.  

My obsession with sock knitting continues!
