Badgers Mess

I've finished my Strictly Sockalong 2021 socks. Ali from the Little Drops of Wonderful podcast hosts a sockalong to run alongside Strictly Come Dancing each year and I've taken part most years. Usually I've knit a patterened sock but this year I decided to just go with something plain and let the yarn do the talking.

Mick bought me this Mad Scientist Yarn for Christmas a couple of years ago. The colourway is Badgers Mess, it's so colourful that I thought it would be perfect for Strictly, especially with the sparkle which is running through it.

I've been knitting the socks whilst watching the shows and the spin off show, It Takes Two, which is shown each weeknight. 

They fit perfect and I'm really pleased with them, another pair to add to my sock drawer.

  1. I do like those socks - such unusual yarn, I like the random way it knits up. Socks are way beyond my capabilities at the moment but you never know...one day...until then I just admire everyone elses!

  2. They're really nice although I'm still amazed you knit and watch TV at the same time as I know I couldn't do it without dropping stitches all over the place :-)

  5. Well done on the finish Jo you have finished ahead of strictly! I love the colours in these socks. I'm really enjoying wearing my handmade socks now that the weather is so cold and I'm starting to get the urge to make somemore xx

  6. Love the socks! I desperately need to knit myself a pair or ten. I haven't knit any new ones in years and mine are all starting to wear, fairly badly. Maybe socks will be my Christmas Eve cast on this year.
