Aussie Sunshine

As our journey unfolded there were unexpected twists and turns; we embraced the adventure making the most of the winding path that was leading us to our new home. A bold pop of colour was needed to celebrate the sunshine and the adventure that brought us here. These socks are my way of marking the journey to our new home in Australia.

Worked from the top down these socks feature an easily remembered eyelet and rib pattern that creates the winding columns that flow down the leg onto the foot. The heel is worked in a slipped stitch pattern, making the heel flap strong and durable. The standard heel flap and gusset construction that suits a wide range of foot shapes.


To celebrate the launch of this mini collection I am hosting a relaxed knit-along in my Ravelry group.

The KAL will run from 17th June to 31st August.

More details can be found in the Knit Share Love Ravelry group – I’d love to meet you, come over for a chat and some relaxed knitting.
