FO: Mint Dolce socks

The socks for my coworker’s Godmother are complete. Nothing fancy here – just vanilla. I let the yarn do all the work. The yarn is Dolce from Hobbii. The colour is Mint. I didn’t bother trying to make the gradient match. I love that they are fraternal twins. I think it makes them that much more whimsical.

The yarn, while not the softest yarn I’ve knit with, was nevertheless quite nice to work with. I don’t recall exactly what I paid for is, but it was around $12 a ball. One ball does a pair, so it’s quite an economical wool.

You may recall that I did a fairly large order from Hobbii back in the early spring. This is the first thing I’ve knit with yarn from that order and I’m definitely not disappointed. They have sales all the time too, and free shipping over a certain amount.

These will go in the mail tomorrow, and hopefully be bringing the recipient some comfort very soon. And I’ve got to get back to Dad’s Christmas sweater. Time is ticking! Lol

    They are lovely! I had never heard of that yarn brand before and took a look at that site. Wow! I could spend a lot of time (and money) there.


  2. They are great Val! I took a look at the Hobbi site the other week when you mentioned it…WOW – great selections and great prices. Nice to know it knit up so well.


  3. I love those socks! They look like mint chocolate ice cream.

    I’d never heard of that company until you mentioned it, and then a podcaster I watch had knit a sweater from some of their yarn. I may have to actually take a look (dangerous!!) now that I see these socks.


  4. Cute socks! How did you find the yarn in terms of thickness? It does seem to me that so many of the hand-dyed skeins these days are very light fingering, perhaps better suited for shawls? If I’m knitting a sock I want the yarn tough enough to last several (many?) wearings!
