A little PS2 - in pink, green and yellow

I am sure that all the participants of Project Spectrum are creative, imaginative and resourceful when it comes to what to knit in the colours allotted in the months we're in. Nonetheless, I'll present you some beloved small knits (also called socks) made with Reynolds Soft Sea Wool, which is - ever since I touched it for the first time - one of my favourite yarns. Canadians, check here - ariadne is taking pre-orders!

The socks are featured in "Steppin' Out", a book with 12 patterns for socks in Soft Sea Wool and designed by Véronik and myself.

Mrs Hunter's socks in spring green by Véronik

Barberpole Socks in light pink by Véronik

Honeycomb socks in dark pink by me
(yes, I know it looks red, but it is the dark pink!)

Yellow Diamond Lace socks by me

I picked these because they are shown in the flavours of the months April and May - there are more to look at and choose from. Let me know what you think!

(The link for yarn and book was chosen randomly, I have no personal connection, I just liked the presentation. Except for the Canadian source, because Mary and Molly Ann are in the Montreal Knits group.)

Hey Mona - the Mrs. Hunter's Socks - is one of those the one I knit in the picture? :)

The sock patterns look great - I'll keep my eyes open for your book. And thanks for the link to the yarn (we don't have the best selection of sock yarn here in Victoria :(

Hi Mona,

wow, tolles Buch mit superschönen Mustern. Weißt Du, obs das auch irgendwo in Deutschland zu kaufen gibt...?
Übrigens - ich stricke gerade die Embossed Leaves :-)) Dauert zwar noch ein bisschen, da ich erst kürzlich angefangen habe, aber die werden suuuper schön!!

Liebe Grüße aus der warmen Pfalz

The socks look great! I think my favorite touch is the lace cuff on the yellow ones.

Alison said...

Very nice! And thanks for the heads up about ariadne carrying the yarn, too. Will the book be available locally?

For some sneaky reason, we've had it at Rosie's in Philadelphia for several weeks. Believe you me, I snatched up that sock book. It is awesome, and I look forward to the sequel.

Hallo Mona,
die Sockenmuster sind wirklich wunderschön!
Leider konnte ich es bei keinem Buchversand finden und möchte daher nachfragen, ob und ggf. wo es in Deutschland erhältlich ist.
Liebe Grüße

Hallo Mona,
vielen lieben Dank für dein Angebot! Ich werde am Montag mal bei meiner Bank nachfragen, welche Kosten für eine Auslandsüberweisung entstehen.
Liebe Grüße
