In the Pink - and Purple!

I remarked recently on Crafty Threads 'n' Yarns that I needed to "get out of my comfort zone" as far as my knitting was concerned. Now, you all know I have a penchant for sock yarn but not sock knitting, hence the plethora of Forest Canopy Shoulder Shawls, but I needed a small project for my Bruges trip and thought okey dokey - let's try socks again.

And here they are. The yarn was a birthday gift from the lovely terri last year - great choice terri, thank you.

Basic Regia Socks

Yarn: Fyberspates Sock Yarn

Colour: Pinks and Purples

Needles: 2.5mm Prym bamboo dpns







I am feeling inordinately pleased with myself this morning :-)
