Ellie over at the Craft House Magic podcast released a free pattern on Valentine's Day, her V for Valentine Socks. You can find it on Ravelry.
I know I've got a few projects on the go but I couldn't resist these cute socks with the heart detail on the leg so I went stash diving and what did I come up with but some gorgeous Fondant Fibre yarn which I bought at Spring Into Wool last year. It will soon be time for this year's Spring Into Wool festival so it's time I got this knit up.
I love all the speckles in this yarn and I think the pattern and yarn will combine to make a gorgeous pair of socks.
Ellie is having a Knit Along with this pattern so I thought I'd join in and duly cast on when the Knit Along started on Valentine's Day.
I haven't got very far yet but I've got a few weeks in which to get them finished. I'm loving seeing all the speckles come to life in the fabric as I knit.
Nicola from the Bumble Stitches podcast is also running a Knit Along. Hers is the Old And New KAL. Basically, you choose a New to you pattern and use some Old yarn from your stash with which to knit it. I'll be able to double dip and enter the socks in both KALs.
Better get those needles clacking!
