What is left to be said about my Christmas Explosion socks?
I finished them on Boxing Day just as a big storm hit our small corner of the world.
In fact, these socks look a lot like the weather map for Scotland over the past 24 hours.
We lost a few branches and the outside light was blown off the side of the house, taking a large section of harling with it, but I think we got off lightly. I was surprised to find the tarpaulin still covering the woodpile this morning.
This is one of those compulsive patterns which lures you forward into knitting just one more section until suddenly you realise you have finished a pair of socks :)
I really enjoyed the yarn too – the crazy pooling adds to the character of these socks. It is much softer than I expected from a 75/25 mix – a seriously good workhorse sock yarn that comes in a remarkable range of colours. (And there is a 20% off sale on right now… just saying!)
I wanted a pair of cheerful Christmas socks and that is definitely what I got!
I am very happy :)
