Grey winter days require bright colours:
Pattern: My own
Yarn: Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock in Carrot
Needles: US1.5 (2.5mm) magic loop
Duration: 16th December to 8th January
Ravelry project: Winter Carrot socks
The socks I make these days rarely follow a pattern, rather they’re a mash-up of elements I like to use. This pair starts with a provisional cast on toe, adds some cables and a gussetted heel, finishing up with a rolled top. They’re one of my longer pairs of socks. The yarn has slight shading but looks solid from a distance, and it is exactly the shade of a fresh carrot.
I’ve never had orange socks before. I have a purple pair planned, and a blue pair. I want to wear the rainbow.
