Today’s FO Friday post is all about handspun boot socks! I was commissioned to make these babies by my friend Kokum Lal of Govinda’s Farm, to help keep her feet nice and cozy as she tends to her beautiful herd.
They started out as some gorgeous Polwarth in the “Shades Of Turquoise” colorway by Greenwood Fiberworks which was spun up fractally as a bulky weight 2 ply. I can’t say enough good things about Carolyn’s amazing fiber. It is buttery soft and super cozy and once spun up bulky weight, yeilds a hand knit socks that is so amazingly warm, springy, and cozy, that I think I need to make a pair of these for myself.
And you want to hear some even better news?
This pattern is being test knit RIGHT NOW and will be available for download shortly. So if you’re looking for a quick and toasty sock pattern (especially in handspun), the wait won’t be long now!
Happy crafting all!
