Phew, I'm finally done with the Christmas knitting, this is the very last pair of socks off the needles. These socks are for Mick.
Yet again, I've used the Vanilla Latte Socks pattern by Virginia Rose-Jeanes, a free pattern on Ravelry. I think this is a super pattern when knitting socks as a gift as the rib pattern has a bit extra give in it than a plain stocking stitch sock does, so it tends to grip the foot a little better and doesn't have to be such a precise fit, just what you want when you're not trying the socks on feet as you knit them.
The socks are knit in Knitglobal Sock Yarn in the Dale colourway which I purchased at Yarndale this year. Yarndale is held in Skipton right on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, so I've decided to call these Yorkshire Dales Socks. Besides, the Yorkshire Dales is my very favourite place.
I've enjoyed my Christmas knitting this year. I started early enough so that it didn't become a chore and I've managed to finish in good time. Now for some selfish knitting for me!
