Finally, I've managed to get the Wildflowers & Honeycomb Socks off the needles. I'd been wanting to knit this pattern for such a long time but once I got started on them, they seemed to languish on my needles for ages.
I absolutely love this pattern and I love the yarn I used too but I'm a little disappointed with the socks. I followed the pattern when it told me to knit two and a half pattern repeats for the leg, it looked long enough when I started the heel flap, but in hindsight, I wish I'd kept the leg going a little longer as the socks are rather shorter than I'd have liked. Never mind, they're okay and I'll still wear them. I shall definitely knit this pattern again though, and would have done anyway, it's just so pretty. I'll make the legs a little longer next time though.
I used Craft House Magic yarn in the Rio colourway and it looks even more beautiful in real life than it does in the photos. It's so soft and squishy too. I really love Ellie's yarn and will back to buy more, even though I still have more in my stash already.
The Wildflowers & Honeycomb Socks pattern is by This Handmade Life and can be found on Ravelry.
They're beautiful and such a lovely colour! I'm trying to fit in time for a little crochet, though I haven't had time to pick it up this week. Best, Jane xReplyDelete
I always knit my socks shorter, the 1st pair I made felt too high for me, I love the yarn.ReplyDelete
Ellie's yarn is lovely, and looks very pretty knit up in that pattern :-)ReplyDelete
They are very pretty. XReplyDelete
Beautiful yarn and pattern and they play together well. Great job!ReplyDelete
These remind me of summer and teamed with a pair of white converse would be ideal. The pattern is lovely. I'm liking the stitch on the heel.ReplyDelete
That is a beautiful pattern, and I know Ellie's yarn is good! I tend to make my socks shorter, so they look perfect to me. I wonder what will be made next.ReplyDelete
YOur socks are lovely...ReplyDelete
But the baby ones, are precious!!!! -smile-

They really are lovely.xxxReplyDelete
This may be exactly what I'm looking for to modify for fingerless!ReplyDelete
If you are looking for fingerless mitts using a similar pattern then the cupcake mitts on Ravelry are really similar.Delete
Lovely. Just right for the Summer.ReplyDelete
So pretty. I am not a knitter and am really hopeless a tit but I still love to see thing like this. My Gran used to do all of my knitting for me and she was absolutely wonderful at everything, I do miss having handmade beautiful things. xReplyDelete
Oh, how I wish I had your talent! I love everything about them! 💖ReplyDelete
I love this pattern and the yarn they are both so pretty. It is really annoying when you realise that a pattern is not quite what you wanted isn't it, especially when you are too far on to do anything about it.ReplyDelete
Lovely pattern and very pretty yarn xcxReplyDelete
They look great Jo, a nice looking pattern.ReplyDelete
All the best Jan
