I don’t normally buy knitting magazines because I never make any of the patterns, but I was bored of Earl Greys and fell in love with these socks when they popped up on my Ravelry friend activity feed, so I thought I’d give them a go. They were fun to knit and made a nice change, and T is very happy with them; there were a few errors in the printed pattern but I messaged Rachel on Ravelry and she came back with answers very quickly.
The yarn is Yarn Yard Bonny in ‘Safran’. I picked this for the rainbow challenge running in the Yarn Yard group on Ravelry, where we’re up to yellow for January and February. It turned out to be quite an orangey sort of a yellow, but I don’t have time to knit anything else so I’m maintaining that it is definitely yellow.
Besides, today’s outfit had proper orange in it. The socks definitely aren’t this orange!
