Celebrate good times!! C'mon!

What's the girliest party colour? Pink!
What makes a girl happy? Warm feet and soft fuzzy socks!

That's a celebration for you right there!

My January Socktopia-socks are done.

These are made specially for one of my girlie girlfriends, Marianne! She requested a pair of nice, tall, bulky socks! And what my Mary wants, my Mary gets ;)

They are being gifted tomorrow. I really hope she likes them.

January Socks

I used a pattern from Garnstudio, with Eskimo yarn and size 7 mm bamboo DPNs.

I used just short of 200 grams of yarn in total. Two balls of solid colour for the leg and two balls of variegated for the foot. They are a bit longer that the pattern says. And I skipped the clochet edgeing. I don't crocet!


January Socks

This picture has the most accurate pink colour, and a 3mm dpn thrown in for scale.

I want a pair too...
