Yarn: Dream in Colour Smooshy, in Blue Lagoon (440 yds/100 g)

Needles: 2.75 mm DPNs, set of 5

Comments: ‘Singing in the Rain’ has always been one of my favourite movies. Just watching Gene Kelly makes me wish for rain! These socks were inspired as much by him splashing through the puddles as the twirl of his umbrella and

I used a gorgeous skein of Dream in Colour Smooshy, which I scored at Socktopus last year and have been waiting with bated breath for a project ever since. At the moment, I haven’t included a picture of the cuff, which billows just under the caff muscle like a cloud, because all the pictures we took just didn’t capture it the way I wanted, so watch out for them! They will be coming!

‘Singing in the Rain’, along with ‘Aethenoth’ are the first two patterns released under the Loumms Year of Socks. I can’t believe we’re finally underway!! It is available for purchase  on Ravelry and will be soon available on Etsy.

Please note, we are re-releasing all our Loumms Year of Socks designs as paid-for patterns. As well as re-tech-editing each pattern, we will be reformatting each pattern and offering tips, hints and clever ideas to make knitting these socks better than ever!
