There is something so satisfying about finishing a pair of socks. And these socks are especially pleasing as they have turned out to be so gorgeous. I bought The Sock Drawer book from the lovely Verity Castledine of Truly Hooked at Yarndale last year but have been too busy hooking to knit socks. I knew that I wanted my first pair this year to be from the book though and spent a while agonising over which of the patterns to choose.
I went with Rhian because it looked to have the perfect balance of being a straightforward pattern with complex looking results and on that front it definitely delivered. I went with a plain yarn to allow the pattern to shine and chose the Butterscotch colour way from the West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4ply range. I used this yarn in a different colour to make my Dragonfly Socks last year and so knew it was lovely to work with and deliciously soft.
I love these socks and am so pleased that they are finished and ready to gift.
