my socks arrived!!!

They are lovely!!!! They are made in cygnet yarn, one I havent tried yet, and a lovely plummy colour. They have a pretty cable up the back, please excuse the bad photography for that, but its not easy taking a picture of the back of your own foot unless your a yoga expert perhaps. The toes had me very interested too, I tend to be on the boring side and use the same technique over and over for toes. These socks have shaping on one side so my socks actually have a left and right!!




They are from the lovely sarah at yoshimiknits.blogspot.com. She was a complete sweetheart throughthe whole swap, stayed in touch and asked lots and lots of questions too. Thanks sarah and please stay in touch I have loved chatting with you xxx


I will have more news later on today including an esty monday and updates to the shop.

They are great socks, I really like the cable at the back. I have used Cygnet yarn and it was nice.
