Once again, I've taken part in the Strictly Sockalong which Ali from the Little Drops of Wonderful podcast hosts each year. I used the Cha Cha Chevron sock pattern last year and the year before so this year I decided to go with something different. I had a look on Ravelry and came up with a pattern by Heidi Alander, Aava Socks.
It's a pattern with a design running down the outside of each leg, so there's a definite right and left sock. It looks pretty and the lace pattern isn't too difficult so I didn't have to concentrate too hard whilst watching Strictly.
I used Noodle Soup yarn in the Disphotic Zone colourway. It's on a stellina base and is very sparkly but the photos don't really show just how sparkly they are. I thought this yarn was perfect for Strictly socks with all the glitz and glamour.
The socks were started during the Strictly Specials which were aired prior to the launch show and I've knit them whilst watching the main Strictly shows, the results shows and the sister show, It Takes Two, which is shown on weekdays. I got them finished just ahead of the final last night.
They're a perfect fit and I'm very happy with the end result.
