So my green little cardigan decided it needed another trip to the frog pond, and to cope with that disappointment I decided I needed to do something I never fail at: sock knitting.
Yarn: Sweet Fiber Super Sweet Sock in Spanish coin
Excuse the pasty white winter legs.. Oh who am I kidding, my legs look like this all year round. Although there might have been a day or two (at most) after my Hawaiian holiday when there possibly was a slight tan. Or maybe it was the sunshine that made it appear as such? ANYWAY.. socks!
So maybe making a pattern titled ‘Golden Leaves’ in a golden yarn isn’t the most original idea ever, but if it fits it fits you know? This yarn is one of the beauties I picked up during my Canada trip and it’s a true Canadian yarn, which I think is pretty awesome. It is oh so soft that for a minute I contemplated making a shawl out of it. But my feet are certainly pleased I turned into a pair of socks.
I don’t think I’ve ever knit a Cookie A pattern that disappointed, and the same goes for these. I just have such a soft spot for lace-y leaf-y sock patterns. I wouldn’t mind knitting/having a hundred socks like these.
These are out of this world amazing!! Like you, when I non-sock knitting projects don’t go as planned, I pull out my pacifier of knits…socks. They never let you down.
I cannot get over how beautiful these socks are. Well done!
Thanks so much Andi! I’m always amazed at how effective sock knitting can be for lifting up your mood. Socks indeed never let you down!
The third time is always a charm! Keeping my fingers crossed for you that the green cardigan behaves itself from now on. The socks are lovely, and such a beautiful color for grey winter days 🙂
leafy sock pattern!!! my favorite favorite favorite (I just finished some, too!) and now, like you, i’m back to cardigan knitting after a trip to the frog pond. How nice to know someone else has been dealing with cardigan issues the same way I have; socks are so loyal, aren’t they?
Oh Your socks are amazing. Im back to socks as of yesterday! I knit a little Christmas tree bear and she nearly did me in. Im no good at miniatures but I like to try from time to time
golly! those are beautiful and in one of my favorite colors 🙂 Sorry about the frog pond visit, sometimes that happens…
These socks are just amazing! love the color and the stitch pattern! And your photos are so inspiring! Keeping my fingers crossed for your 3d attempt on the cardi!
I remember returning from camp one year, pleased I had a tan. Turned out it was just dirt that came off after a good scrub.
I’m glad you found a good pattern to get you out of a knitting disappointment. I don’t think any of us stop making rookie mistakes.
These are so happy! Yay for something that you love!
Lovely socks and stunning yarn. I adored it as soon as you showed it to us after your Canadian holiday. It is perfect for this pattern.
