FO Friday - Pink Socks

These were finished a little while ago, actually, but I'm trying to pace myself with the posting, and thought I'd wait for a FO Friday to share these.

I really really like these socks and have been wearing them quite a bit, off and on (depending on the weather of course). They are knitted in a simple top-down stockinette pattern with a short-row heel, but working with the Lorna's Laces sock yarn was such a pleasure, and patterned yarns always make projects go quicker I think - as you knit you wait for the next colour change and before you know it you've done another inch.

Knitting these has also been hugely fascinating to the clan of boys - each of them, at some point, came and inspected the socks, and when they were done they all tried them on and decided that they'd like a pair too. So there we go - I guess that's my next project(s) all lined up... In fact, I've already started with a pair for boy #3, but I'll share those another time. :)

Sharing with Tami's FO Fridays
