Did you notice the blog got a little facelift?
I've streamlined my Categories section, added a shop page and condensed my blog posts so any info you're looking for will be easier to find.
As I was sifting through old blog posts during the remodel I realized I have a tendency to tell you I've started knitting socks but never actually show you the final product. What a bummer! So I've compiled a few sets o'socks that I don't think you got a chance to see.
Without further ado, let's take a stroll down sock memory lane!
#1.) Yoga Socks. These are made with the pattern Yoga Teacher's Yoga Socks by imawale imawale on Ravelry. Knitted in KnitPicks Felici fingering yarn in the colorway Fanciful; 75% Superwash Merino, 25% Nylon.

Wow! That's a whole mess of socks!
I hope you dug my sock run down. I know I've shared a lot of these on my Instagram but I felt they needed their own moment in the spotlight on the blog.
Let me know if you've tried any of these patterns/yarns and if you have, which ones are your favorites? (And feel free to let me know what you think of the blog remodel!)
Thanks for stopping by! I hope I've inspired you to pick up your needles and cast on some Summer Socks!
