Two Pair for a Monday

For today's project features, I have two pair of socks to share with you. First up are these socks knit by Manon using FF Superwash Merino Wool Sock Yarn in the Coral Pink colorway. Manon knit these as a test-knit for Sockaholic Kate.

Aren't they smashing! You are all going to need to stop sending me photos of things you've knit with yarns purchased some time back. The Coral Pink colorway is yet another one that I've had on the backburner for a while and now after seeing Manon's awesome socks, I'm itching to whip up a batch.

The next socks were knit by Andrea using FF Laceweight Merino Yarn. Although socks in laceweight sound like quite a chore, the pattern for these socks uses two strands of laceweight held together.

Andrea used the Slippin' Stripin' Sock Pattern for these. If you're on Ravelry, the pattern is available as a free download.

Andrea knit these as part of SockMadness2, which she reports has been a real challenge but has resulted in her knitting time for a pair of socks shrinking from around 6 days to down to less than 48 hours. Now that's impressive! And so are these lovely socks!

You can see more of Andrea's lovely work on her blog.

Everyone have a great start to another week!
