FO: Rye Socks

I am very lucky. My son loves and is very interested in my knitting. He always asks if what I am making is for him. One day he announced that he wanted socks in his favorite color green. I knew I has some worsted weight green variegated yarn in my stash he would love. Now I needed to find a pattern to go with my yarn. Of course I went to Ravelry and found the Rye pattern by TinCanKnits in my queue. This was perfect!


The socks are a little big on him but that just means he can wear them longer. I really enjoyed knitting these. The pattern had enough going to keep your interest but was still good TV knitting. This is from their Simple Collection for new knitters however I think even experienced knitters would enjoy making this pattern.

The yarn is Sheep Dreamery Choptank in Emerald City. This was a door prize from Knit-topia 2013. Unfortunately I do not think she is dying anymore. The yarn was very enjoyable to knit with and the colors very vibrant and beautiful. The boy and I are both very happy with the results.

Until next time ....

Nice! Your son has good taste - Green is my favourite colour as well, and those are stunning!
