As you can see the sixth pair are not quite finished but I’ve been enjoying the symmetry of posting on the first of every month, so there you have it. These socks will be finished by June 14 because they are a gift for my mother on her birthday. Don’t worry – it’s not a surprise. She already knows about them. I have promised my mother two pairs of handknit socks per year – one pair on her birthday and one pair for Christmas. I think I can manage that. Hopefully.
The lovely purple wool was given to me by my friend Janine, and she’ll have to tell you what it is.
