Auction Item Spotlight: Suzanne's Pink Socks

This post is written by Suzanne who is knitting a pair of beautiful socks for the Pink Auction.

I started working on these in Cork while studying, so they've been fully immersed in physics, but they also have a playful side. The colour of these socks reminds me of old fruit salad sweets from the corner shop, yum!

The pattern is Angee by Cookie A (found in her excellent book, Sock Innovation) and the yarn is Trekking [from Vibes & Scribes on Lavitt's Quay].

The simple stitch pattern looks a little geeky straight off the needles, but blocked and on a foot (or arm like the photo), it blossoms into the life of the party.
