Sunshine socks

Ironically we have seen little sunshine since I started knitting these socks on Christmas day. Boxing day - which we spent driving to visit my parents in Derbyshire - was glorious but since then it has been grey, grey, grey.

Luckily the pattern and yarn has brought a little sunshine into what is turning out to be a rather gloomy period, and I have already finished the first sock and cast on the second.

The pattern is Sunshine from the Sock Innovation book by Cookie A - a fairly simple top-down pattern which I've enjoyed knitting even though I prefer toe-up as a rule.

The yarn is UK Alpaca's sock yarn, which comes in five beautiful colours including this vibrant mustard (the picture doesn't do it full justice).

Happy New Year! Shame it's been a gloomy one weather-wise so far - sunny socks are the perfect antidote though!
