Kumara Bed Socks

Kumara Bed Socks; I fell in love with this pattern from the Interweave Knits Holiday 09 issue, and like so many patterns, knew I needed a pair of these.

After starting with one yarn, that “wasn’t making me happy”, these sat around the house and “mocked” me for quite some time, until I cast on again with some of my own hand dyed yarn using the Spicy Mama Colorway. I like the fast repeat of the colors. The yarn is worsted weight and the color repeats made it an exciting knit.

I can’t wait to wear them around the house, and to bed during those wintery nights, or maybe I’ll just turn the AC up….

May your knitting needles fly as fast as dragonflies…
