FO: Bright Pink Socks

Knitters tend to have a love/hate relationship with knitting socks. I actually love making them, and I tend to have a pair on the go as my small to-to ‘travel’ knitting project. The following pair I knitted for one of the au pairs (or care professionals as we call them as they are fully trained specialists) who I supported during her time here in Australia. She is a pink-fanatic, as you can see!

The pattern was one that I had in my Ravelry queue for a few years is the Snowfall Socks by Tabitha Gandee. I am pretty sure the yarn was from 24 Mile Hollow Yarn Co. The socks were easy to make, I had to pay attention to make sure the purl pattern on the top of the sock was right, but apart from that they flew off the needles.

It’s funny, pink, much like red, is really hard to photograph well. But I guess the brightness of the yarn shines through in these photos.
