I have been craving a pair of hand knit socks for a long time. I'm not interested in learning to knit my own, but when I met Johanne, MK (Master Knitter), I asked if she could make me a pair. Here she is trying to figure out what I've done wrong with the front side of an orange top I've been working on for a year.
I didn't have to go far for the yarn. Although it is not alpaca, John kindly provided me with a lovely heather coloured sock yarn.
It has flecks of green in it and Johanne went above and beyond in the creation of these socks - look at the pretty ruffle she added. The green in the ruffle is from a sweater Johanne created during our knitting course.
Aren't they lovely? I intend to wear them instead of slippers.
