Carlyn's Sox

Three down, one pair to go.

These are the socks I knit for my niece Carlyn . . .

. . . and here they are, being modeled.

I think they took only about a month to make — much quicker than the pairs for her brother and sister. I'm not sure why it took less time.

The yarn was a skein I picked up in Friday Harbor last year, at Island Wools. It is a hand painted yarn made by the store's owner. This particular yarn is Bamboo Bliss, colorway Tropical Dreams which I do not see on the website.

It was fun to knit up, and to see how the stripey pattern developed.

I've begun knitting Dave's pair, but he may have to be patient. I finished the quilt top for my next Craftsy pattern, and I'm working on getting it quilted so I can publish the pattern.
