The Socks of Happiness
Pattern: Kabuki from Knitted Socks East and West by Judy Sumner
Yarn: Boot Sock Handpaints by Stoddart Family Farm
Modifications: One half extra pattern repeat for more length. In retrospect, I wish I had done an extra row or two of the pattern. Stopping where I did left an open work piece just at the top of the gusset shaping "vee". I think this makes for a weak spot there. Next time
I'm in love with this yarn. The colour fills me with joy and the feel of it is rich and delicious. I need to get more. This stuff is too beautiful to hide under boots. This vendor sells at Wychwood Barns Farmer's Market once a month or so. I subscribe to their e-newsletter so next time I hear they're heading to Toronto, I'm going to buy more of their wonderful yarn. I want to make a beret from this.
