I loved making Kemp's Happy Socks! It was a really fun knit! But I think a different yarn would have been better for them, and I think the yarn (which I also liked) would have been better for another pattern. Poor combination on my part. Plus the pic would have been better if DD would have modeled again for me!

I'm glad you liked it! I thought it was pretty fun too. The crest of the wave pattern has just enough changes to keep you on your toes but not so many that you can't do anything else while you're knitting.
