I was not even 10 years old the first time I saw the film The Sound of Music at the local cinema. Since then, I have seen the movie countless times, even as a live Musical Theatre.
During these strange times we are living in now, it is normal that we feel anxious from time to time. Of course, we can get comfort from our knitting. Apart from that, we can also turn to music as a source of solace. Then, the song My Favourite Things is a wonderful choice. This song illustrates how we can get comfort when thinking about lovely things, for example, “Bright Copper Kettles”.

Sizes
Small (Medium, Large, X-Large)
The sock’s circumference around the ball of the foot is
15.5 (18, 20, 22.5), to fit foot circumferences of
15.5-19.5 (18-22, 20-24, 22-26) cm

Needles & Notions
1 unique stitch marker as BOR m

5 stitch markers

Tapestry needle 

Needles to knit a small circumference to obtain gauge
Larger needles, one size above gauge size, used if needed for colourwork
The pattern can easily be worked with longer circulars i.e. 80 cm / 32”, double-pointed needles, 23 cm / 9” circulars or flippy-flex needles.

Yarn
Main Colour (MC): Moods of Colors True Corriedale (80% Corriedale wool, 20% nylon), 400m / 440 yds per 100g
150 (170, 190, 210) m / 165 (190, 210, 230) yds
Contrast Colour (CC): Moods of Colors Rock Socks (80% merino, 20% nylon), 400m / 440 yds per 100g
130 (150, 165, 180) m / 145 (165, 180, 200) yds
Note that metreage can vary depending on the length of the sock.

Gauge
The socks are knit with a tight gauge to create a durable fabric.
36 sts and 45 rnds = 10x10 cm / 4x4” in stocking stitch after blocking
36 sts and 45 rnds = 10x10 cm / 4x4” in pattern after blocking
Make sure both round and stitch gauge are correct. That will ensure your socks fit.
For the sample, needles 2.25 mm was used as gauge size needle and 2.5 mm for the colourwork sections, read more under the sections Needles & Notions and Tips & tricks.
I knit with a tight gauge, so you might need to go down a needle size to obtain gauge.
