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.
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!
