Boyland Socks, originally published in Laine Magazine’s ‘52 Weeks of Socks’, are a fun, cozy socks featuring color work, contrasting heels and toes, and my favorite, bobbles!

My sample is knit in The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers Soka’pii, a wonderfully rustic fingering weight singles. You can use any fingering weight yarn that you like, as long as you are able to meet gauge. :smile:
