Wild Bees

I finished the third sock in the Handmade Sock Society with yarn that I dyed in the Crockpot.

The name “Wild Bees” is the perfect name. The lacy pattern looks like bees and the yarn color reminds me of honey. I think they turned out great. I just have to weave in the ends.

Details

    67 grams of yarn
    US #1 (2.25 mm) needle
    Began March 31, 2021, finished April 20, 2021
    Size medium
The 33 grams of yarn leftover will plenty for at least a contrast for another project.

Unfortunately the socks are too snug for my foot. But one of the twins has narrower feet and will be able to wear them. Now all I have to do is knit a pair of socks for the other twin…

    • I’m hoping my granddaughter wears them well, doesn’t abuse the socks, and knows how to take care of them. I’ll include all that information with the socks. I also like to note how many stitches are in each pair, roughly 24,000 stitches. She is learning how to knit so she has an idea of the time and effort it takes to make something.
