Although it’s a little more expensive to have yarn shipped internationally, I couldn’t resist trying this beautiful new yarn Scout from Wool Days in western Australia. I love the care that this yarn designer brings to everything – her website, her descriptions, even the writing on her labels, is all beautiful and intentional. Even better, the yarn is certified biodynamic and is minimally processed, following organic standards. It is also incredibly soft!
Pattern: Sunday Morning Socks by cabinfour
Yarn: Scout (100% merino) – 2 1/2 skeins per pair in colors Blueberry and Creamy Caramel
Needles: US 5s dpns
I knit the foot to 7 1/2″ before beginning the toe cap, which came to exactly 17 cables.
I love the little detail of cables – like all of cabinfour’s patterns, the beauty is in the simplicity, the small touches, and the opportunity to really show off and appreciate the yarn being used.
The yarn is labeled DK, but I think it’s closer to worsted – these socks came out so squishy and cozy, they will be perfect for cold winter mornings! I’m not sure how well they’ll stand up to repeated wear – probably better to wear with care around the house 🙂
