Twisted Limone Designs

Hand painted self striping sock yarn from Twisted Limone DesignsI bought some sock yarn the other day. It feels like an absolute age since I knitted socks and I had the sudden urge to make some. I know, I'm odd.

So I was scouting about online for yarn and then I noticed Karen at Rainbow Feet had updated her Etsy shop with some of her groovy hand painted self striping sock yarn and a ball (or two) of it may have fallen into my shopping cart.

This ball of vibrant acid yellow-green and hot pink 'Fruit Salad' arrived in today's post and after I finished beadmaking for the day I got my knitting needles out and set to work.

Hand knitted striped sockThe yarn is knitting up nicely. I was assuming that Chris would hate the resulting sock but he said he actually quite likes it. To be honest I was a little bit disappointed - I kind of like shocking him with way out socks!

Anyway, if you're a fellow sock knitter you should go and look at Karen's shop - Twisted Limone Designs - on Etsy. Last time I checked she still had a few balls of self striping yarn in stock .....

Wow! What a speedy knitter, these are looking fantastic and just how socks should be; bright and fun! I love the black contrast. Thank you Laura :)

Hi Laura,

I just love the wool that you are using for your socks, I will definitely be checking out Karen's shop. I have recently started on my very first pair of socks so I will send a pic if I ever get them finished!

Not brave enough to knit socks - I stick to scarves, but I am loving that wool!

Having a clear-out and finding loads of wool, which means I really should get my needles out and get knitting?
