WIP Wednesday: super socks

Just a quick one today as I am solo-parenting this week while my husband is away with work. I caved yesterday and cast on a pair of socks with my very special DIY hand dyed yarn. And I am loving it!

I've merged a couple of patterns - I've used the toes from the last pair (but cast on 8 stitches per side), but am using the heel from this pair as I fancied trying a short row heel. And I'm using fewer stitches than for my red pair as they're a little baggy round the heel (68 here vs. 76 on the red socks). All going well so far, and I'm looking forward to seeing how these turn out.


  1. Loving the look of your DIY hand dyed yarn!

    1. Me too. Having knitted a bit more though they're not going to match! One ball still has lots of red tones and the other is almost entirely blue. Not that it matters, and I can always improve the technique for the next dyeing adventure.
