I've had a skein of Cascade Heritage sock yarn in the Butter colourway, as well as some Rowan Kidsilk Haze in the Daffodil colourway in my stash for a long time now. I've been wanting to use them to make a pair of bed socks and I've finally got my act together.
These are the V For Valentine Bed Socks, so named because the pattern is the V For Valentine Socks by Ellie Jones of the Craft House Magic podcast. I altered it only slightly, knitting two complete hearts on the ankles rather than one and a half as the pattern dictates. I wanted a slightly longer leg and this has worked out well.
I held both yarns together and the Kidsilk Haze has given the socks a fluffy effect. They feel so warm and cosy, and very luxurious.
I used 66g of the Cascade Heritage yarn and they took exactly one 25g ball of the Kidsilk Haze, in fact, I was playing yarn chicken by the end. This is how much I had left to graft the second toe together, leaving a short tail to weave in at the end.
I'm so pleased with these socks, they've turned out exactly how I imagined and are perfect for keeping my feet toasty warm in the cold weather we're having just now.
Ooh I like those socks and the hearts are lovely. You were lucky the yarn lasted well. We definitely need toasty warm toes in this weather.ReplyDelete
They look so soft and beautiful, I can't wear socks in bed, but I would wear them through the day.ReplyDelete
I am full of admiration for your knitty wonders. They look so perfect. I'm scared of making socks. I have made them twice before i think. When i finish my latest project methinks i will try again with socks.ReplyDelete
They sound just the ticket to keep you warm and cosy.ReplyDelete
