I've been meaning to show you these utterly gorgeous hand-knit socks that were made just for me by the amazing Kelsey from Everyday Fray. Back in August I had a hankering for some hand knitted socks, and after a pretty feeble attempt at knitting myself a scarf (lets just say I bought the yarn in August and I still haven't knitted more than a swatch), I realised that I'm not going to be knitting my own socks any time soon.
You should definitely check out Kelsey's blog post for all the deets on these socks. It turns out that Kelsey and I have nearly the same size feet, which was a bonus, and these socks fit me perfectly.
They are soft, they are squishy, the cabling is amazing, and you can probably tell from my latest quilting efforts that I'm definitely not over last year's purple kick!
I know that hand knit socks are a lot of work to make and are delicate, so I'm only planning to wear these indoors with my wool lined slippers, and I'll be taking extra care with washing them too. Autumn has just begun here and we had a couple of cool days. It's not quite wool sock weather yet, but I'm sure looking forward to getting to wear these beauties.
