FO - Father's Day Socks

I've not really been knitting much lately, hence the lack of blogging! I haven't had anything to show you! However I thought I'd get my act together today and show you the socks I've made for Mr Soaring Sheep for Father's Day this coming weekend


The colours look almost subdued in these photos which is a shame. They've got lots of sparkle in them which seems to have dyed the same colour as the yarn so in some places it's gold and others it's more of a silvery-grey


The yarn is from Countess Ablaze and is called "Big Fish in a Little Pond". I originally bought it for me but Mr Soaring Sheep was eyeing it up so I thought I'd order a second skein for him. I'll knit my skein up into a more patterned sock I think so we can tell them apart!


In the top left corner you can see a square I've made using the left over yarn. I've got 64 squares finished in my sock yarn banket now. I'm still ignoring the ends so I'll need to do a lot of weaving in at some point! I can't remember how many squares I'm aiming for but I want the blanket to be big enough for an adult to snuggle up under so still got a way to go. I'm enjoying seeing how the different yarn colours contrast with each other. Hopefully I'll have some more finished socks soon so I can get some more squares done. I'm still resisting buying mini skeins, even though they are very very tempting!


Hope you all have a good week and if you're in the UK then I hope you get to escape the rain we keep getting!

Linking up with Keep Calm Craft On and Yarn Along
