My second pair of socks from Ann Budd’s ‘Getting Started Knitting Socks’ book, I think I’m getting the hang of it!
The yarn is Pure Cotton Double Knitting by Razzle Dazzle yarns…never heard of it? Neither had I until I found it on eBay sold by a shop called benlyndalle, who offer quite a range of fair priced yarn. This particular one is only £2.65 per 100g ball (excluding p&p), and that was enough to knit the pair of socks. It can be a bit splitty, but overall knits up nicely and is very soft to wear.
I found that it was easier and quicker knitting these patterned socks than the plain ones I knitted earlier, concentrating on the lace kept my attention focussed!
Will there be any more socks? Well I’ve got a book showing how to knit 2 pairs at once with circs…so maybe 🙂
