FO: Bullfinch II

IMG_3427

Dad’s Father’s Day socks are done. They are pretty much the same as I made before (which Mom accidentally felted), except the heels and toes on this pair are charcoal instead of white).

The yarn is West Yorkshire Spinners Country Birds Prints in BFL (DK weight). It’s a lovely yarn – very soft, and nice to knit with. The only downside is that it’s not superwash (hence the accidental felting). But, as long as you know that, they aren’t that hard to take care of, and so far, all his other pairs are wearing quite nicely.

This particular colourway is Bullfinch, and I love that pop of red with the two shades of grey.

In addition to these socks, I’ve ordered him some solar lights for his garden. They should arrive any day now, so I’m all set for Father’s Day.

Now onto some socks for Dave’s birthday!

    Love’em!! Solar lights are a good idea. I wonder if they might scare the deer or just show them the way to go…lol? It seems they have eaten one half of my yard’s hostas already.

  2. Oh he will LOVE them. I forget how much more yarn it takes most people to make socks. I have tiny feet and mostly knit socks for mE! I love solar lights. I moved ours a few times, I haven’t found the right spot yet…

    Those socks turned out great and I really like the charcoal heels and toes. What a great gift combined with the solar lights. You have really been finishing projects quickly.
