Happy Easter Bunny :)

I'm a very happy Easter Bunny as I've finished my Easter socks - Yay!!

Here they are and they fit just perfick . . .

These were a joy to knit - very straightforward pattern.  The self striping yarn does all the work for you.  I decided not to try and make them match exactly as I thought it would be fun to see how the colours worked on the second sock - if you look closely you can see the difference - subtle, eh!?:)

I love the flea stitch pattern on the sole too - very toasty!

It took me far longer to complete the second sock as I decided to take a leisurely pace and enjoy my Easter Hols with my boys, which I did! :) :)

We had some lovely sunny (but windy!) weather here in the Hebrides and I enjoyed a plod or two out the moor track beside our home.  Everything went at a very leisurely pace - no work or school deadlines or timescales to meet - just nice relaxed mealtimes, some homemade muffins here and there - I enjoyed my 'staycation' on the croft very much, hehe!

Hope you had or are having a nice Easter break too . . . 

See you soon :)

So pretty, love the pattern and colours. You knit so wonderfully. My knitting skills are so basic, I can only do scarves.

Hellooooo, yes it's me, hope you're sitting down when you read my comment Alison!! It's been a while since I visited.
Your socks look amazing, my goodness you're a real pro at sock knitting.Great yarn.
I'm joining in a 'sockalong' on the net 'Winwick Mum'is running it and so many people have joined in and are knitting up their own socks, it's great. Hope all is well with you, I'm doing a quick catch up....Bye xx
