FO - Bandwagon Socks

After promising to work monogomously on these socks on Monday I finally got them cast off with ends sewn in yesterday. I planned to give them a quick soak and then hang them up to block and dry. Except I forgot, so they soaked all night and have only been put on the blockers this morning. Whoops!

I love this colourway so much, it's so much more vibrant than these photos capture and it works surprisingly well with the lace pattern.

I'll have to see if I can get a photo of them on my feet once they're dry so you can see how the pattern looks more clearly.

The pattern I used was a free one called Bandwagon Socks which is very straight forward to knit but looks more complicated. The yarn is from Mothy and the Squid and is in the Black Skies Rainbow colourway

My reward for finishing these socks off is that I get to cast on a new project :-D

Look at this yummy yarn :-D It's called "Electric Sheep" and is one of my stash of Laughing Yaffle yarns. And guess what, it's going to become another pair of socks. I'm so radical ;-)


Happy crafting everyone :-) Hop over to Keep Calm Craft On and Yarn Along if you want more crafty posts to read

  4. Your bandwagon socks totally rock! They have turned out more blue than I imagined they would at the start. Your Electric sheep yarn is lovely too, and will look great knitted up as socks :) x

  9. Beautiful socks as usual! I am currently promising myself that I can cast on some sock yarn I bought yesterday once I have cast off the sock I am currently working on, but he truth is I'm out of needles in the right size. The upside is that the current sock has suddenly started growing rather fast!
