Vintage Fairy Lights Socks

When I bought the yarn for my Madewell cardigan, I slipped in a skein of Gingerbread Martini, just because it was pretty. It is a limited edition yarn, and sometimes makes an appearance at Christmastime in Birdstreet Yarns. I love the yarn, the colour, and these socks! I have made a pair of Vintage Fairy Lights socks before, but gifted them before taking photos. They have a nice combination of interesting pattern, and easy to remember/knit repetition....I have a feeling this won't be my last pair as they fit so well.

Joji Locatelli Madewell cardigan

Really feeling the autumnal vibes! Like I said in my last post, I love a bit of layering and a hand knit cardigan was conspicuous in its absence, considering how much I love to knit! I had recently succumbed to a scant sweater quantity of yarn that was just right for autumn/winter wear, and eventually found the Madewell cardigan as my pattern - something with few details and built more for comfort than intricate details, and crucially, in 4ply/fingering weight!
