The bright, happy colors of the Bernat Baby Cakes yarn are PERFECT for summer socks. Knitting with this yarn just makes me smile. :)
Doesn't it make you happy to see those pretty colors together?
And I really love the texture of this new yarn - so SOFT and SMOOSHY and......SPONGE-Y! I can't think of another way to describe it. You'll have to try it out yourself, so you can see what I mean. It doesn't feel like any other yarn I've used before. Just right for summer knitting. I'm so glad I was able to use it before the Fall season started.
It has certainly been hot in North Carolina this year. Most days, I have just stayed inside, knitting in my craft room. But, this week, we had some cloudy days...so I took my knitting outside to knit on the porch.
After knitting for a while, I decided to slip the sock on my foot, to see how it fit. Uh-oh! WAY too big. So, I took off the needles and frogged it all. Now, all I had to show for my outdoor knitting was a bucket full of frogged yarn. :P
Soon, the weather changed, and the rain started coming down, so I grabbed my bucket and took it inside. I then re-started my socks in a smaller size, and pretty soon, was caught right back up to where I had gotten before....In fact, I went even further! I love how fast this project is going.
If you've never knit socks before, this pattern is a great way to learn. Since it uses worsted weight yarn, it goes quickly. Come on, and join me in making some bright ankle socks!
