Cosy Toes: Part 2 ✔️

The next thing to come of my needles are my Christmas Eve Socks, they are a bit of a dazzling rainbow pair of socks!
I cast these on, on Christmas Eve as part of Little Bobbins knit along and with our Christmas being a bit busy I didn't get much done over the holidays but have slowly plodding along of an evening and last week finished them off.
They are a little on the big size (massive under exaggeration!!!)  as I got a little bit carried away one evening knitting the foot of the sock infant of the tv. I really think I need one of these sock rulers, but the seller must be out of the adult ones, I have seen someone on Instagram using a homemade cardboard one, but I can't remember who.
These are a from Socks from the Toe Up just using the basic sock pattern, to show off the amazing colours of the yarn. I did try really hard to start the socks at the same part of the pattern so that they would match and I think I succeeded.
The Details
Pattern - Basic sock from Socks from the Toe Up by Wendy Knits 
Time to knit - About a month, which I don't think is too bad for me!
This is the first thing finished from my 2016 FAL Q1 list and although it was an easy finish I'm just chuffed that I've got something ticked off! 

2016 FAL


  1. Those are absolutely beautiful (and some of us have big honking feet - I have something in common with Paris Hilton, haha) :D Love the rainbow variegated yarn! It didn't occur to me until you mentioned it, that the variegated design would vary from sock to sock unless you actually took steps to try to match it, and you were certainly successful on that front - WOW. That is one heck of a great 2016 FAL start!

  2. Gorgeous!! I'm starting my first pair of socks on Saturday, if I like it I may need one of those sock rulers!


I know time is precious, so thank you so much for taking the time to leave me a message xxx
