April Showers in May

These socks are knit in Posh Yarn's Lucia sock yarn in the April Showers colourway (April's sock club yarn) using 2 x 2.75 mm Inox Grey circs, toe up with short row heels.

I thought the colourway went perfectly with the Scrolls pattern from More Sensational Knitted Socks. The pattern reminded me of ripples in puddles - very appropriate today as we've had torrential rain for most of the day. This is a 14-row pattern but it knitted up extremely quickly.

They took me 9 days to knit - I made the first sock in April but got sidetracked by other things ;0) and finally finished the other one today.

gorgeous Linda. I've just put up my version on my blog this evening!! Have to say, I was inspired by your first sock to have a go at the pattern, so many thanks :)

Lovely lovely socks! How well does the PY wear though?

Knittynora - PY Lucia washes and wears really well. Although it is suggested to hand wash them, I always put mine through the machine on a 40 degree wash and have never had any problems. I've got a pair I made a year ago (which I wear quite often) and they're still like new, despite going through the machine on a regular basis. Hope this helps. :0)
