Wild Thing

I think these may be the quickest socks I've ever knit for myself. They took me 10 days to knit.

Pattern - my usual top down with Eye of Partridge heel flap and kitchenered toes
Yarn - Sock Hop, Wild Thing colorway
Needles & Gauge - Size 1 1/2 DPNs, 7 st/in

I loved working with this yarn. Because it's handspun, I never knew which color would turn up next. I think that's part of the reason why I was able to knit this socks so quickly. I have another colorway of this yarn in my stash. I have my next several pairs of socks already planned, but I might just have to move the Sock Hop up to the front of the line.

Oh I love those socks! I want some of that yarn! Maybe after Christmas I will break down and get some. Good job!
