May Socks

This is now my third pair of monthly socks, and I'm still enjoying making them.  In fact I'm already looking forward to casting on for next month's socks.  Who would have thought I would ever get so excited about sock knitting!

So here they are, my gorgeous May socks.

I just love the colours in the yarn, they remind me of watermelons.

I used the Hermione's Everyday Socks pattern, which is a free download on Ravelry.  It has a simple small textured pattern that is very easy to knit.

Unfortunately, I didn't think that the pattern was particularly well-written.  I did have a few issues with not very clear instructions, but nothing too serious.

But look at those colours!  I do love the socks and the lovely delicious colours.  You can see full details of the pattern and yarn used on my Ravelry project page, here.

Next month, I'm thinking of using a plain colour yarn to make some lacy textured socks.  I just can't wait for June!

  2. lovely colour combination. Yes....watermelons. look nice and warm.

  3. They are beautiful, the luxury of hand knitted socks is something I would love to be able to do. Wonderful colours.
