With the excitement and anticipation of the Seven Skeins Club beginning last week, I thought it was time to finish up a pair of socks that had been on my ‘brainless knitting project’ pile for too long a time now. So old that Debs enquired ‘I’ve seen those before Sonia?’ at knit night last week. Right, I thought!

They are Opal socks in the Rainforest colour way.
I used Susan B. Anderson’s How I Make My Socks pattern. It is essentially a basic cuff down sock pattern, my favourite way to knit socks.
I knit the leg using 2.25mm needles, then I switched to 2mm needles when turning the heel for the remainder of the foot. My socks have a snugger feel when I do this. Ah sock Utopia!
My Bingo card is looking a little better this week:
Although this is mainly due to my Kate Davies colour work socks. My Opal socks FO haven’t got a box to be crossed off!
p.s. If anyone wants to claim 5.5 balls of Louisa Harding Shingle, it’s yours, just leave a comment. That’s my ‘Lose it’ box sorted.
