FO - BFF Socks
Just finished ANOTHER project! Go me! This will hopefully be a productive summer as far as knitting goes!

These are my BFF Socks, a Cookie A pattern that you can find in her book Knit. Sock. Love.

The yarn is Happy Feet. I bought it in Seattle, WA, two years ago when my family went on a cruise to Alaska. There was yarn in EVERY port, I kid you not!

The yarn was great to work with...good thing because I had to frog the first sock after I'd turned the heel and realized it was too big (went down to a size 0 needle and the XS sock size, which made the socks fit perfectly afterward), and I also had to frog the second sock after finishing the leg portion because somewhere along the line, I'd started doing the cable round on the wrong round number! Ugh. Sometimes it's the simplest patterns that can throw us the most!

Anyhoo, I hope you enjoy the pictures!

You say you bought the yarn in Seattle. That might cause a problem. In this part of the country socks expect to be worn with sandals. When nobody's watching, you might find that they move into the closet with your sandals. Consider yourself warned.



Socks and Sandals
It just happens to be an insurance commercial. I won't have insurance with them but I do like their commercials.

Beautiful socks and a perfect fit too. I agree, wonderful color and pattern. What a fabulous cruise with yarn in every port!

I came back to this thread to admire the socks some more and saw this. It works for me. I don't know why it wouldn't for you. In case you'd like to try again, I'll just copy/paste it. That might fix for you. I've tried links that didn't work but they seemed to for everyone else.

If that doesn't work, and you're still interested, put sandals & socks guy in the youtube search bar, it's by NorthWest Types. It's just a silly commercial but kind of funny, in a NW kind of way.

I'm glad it worked. If you like that you might like the goat herder guy one. People here do wear socks with sandals. I'm not sure they do anywhere else.
