Port and Starboard socks

Sometime ago in the dim and distant past I started these socks. I then managed to misunderstand the pattern on the heel and they languished unloved in the bottom of my knitting draw. Christmas came and went and still they looked at me reproachfully everytime I opened that particular draw. I stuck my nose in the air and ignored them, I needed time to love them again. I did love them you see, I just felt so silly at having misunderstood the heel and then to compound my silliness I had carried on and actually kitchenered one sock. I needed time to come to terms with the fact that I would have to frog the best part of one sock. In the end I frogged it completely, I felt at peace again.

Port and Starboard Socks

When I restarted to knit them, I felt my love grow, the pattern is lovely, it just flows, thank you Knitted Bear. I love the colour, it brings sunshine into my heart. The song, “you are my sunshine, my only sunshine, you make me happy when skies are grey…” keeps popping into my head. I whole heartedly recommend this colour to you especially in the middle off all this nasty, horrible weather. It is Schoeller & Stahl Limbo 4548.

There is something about yellow socks that make me giggle.

As you can see, I was left with a tiny ball of wool. I was a bit panicky at one stage.

Excuse the golden retriever hair in this picture, its a hazard of golden retriever ownership!!

Gorgeous, gorgeousness.
