My friend Stephanie didn’t have any hand knit socks – but she did just have a birthday!


I bought her a little something for her birthday and offered to remedy her sock problem. I let her pic out the pattern – and then she did a stash dive and come up with the yarn from her own stash – mostly because she really wanted socks out of the yarn, I offered to let her pick a yarn and I would buy it!


Pattern: BFF by Cookie A
Yarn: Koigu PPPM 2 skeins (I can’t remember the colorway number and I am not sure where I put the ball bands!)
Needles: Addi Turbo Size 2 – magic looped
Time: 2 weeks while working on other projects – I have had them ready since before I went to LA, but just got these to her on Friday night! First time I had seen her since they were finished.


This is a quick and easy sock pattern – and I think Steph really likes them!

(and as promised – the socks from Wendy’s book – pics are taken and everything!!)

My mum loves handknit socks and whilst she can knit them, is not as quick as me (admittedly i have much more free time) so gave me two skeins of yarn from her stash to knit her socks for her bday.
Love that pattern and the yarn looks lovely, do you know what it is?

I love em! I love em! Thanks, Aimee! You might have just inspired me to knit some socks (and actually finish a pair!). :)
