Wow, so sorry for the delay! Many problems with computers and internet connections and me being an idiot when it comes to typesettings, but it is here at last! My May sock!
Pattern: Charlotte’s Web by loutheperson
Yarn: Counting Sheep, Alpamayo Sock by Woolhunter (Alpino Sockweight: 50% Superfine Alpaca 50% Merino, 100 g/300 m) — roughly 2x100g skeins (I used about 1.5 skeins)
Needles: 2.75 mm DPNs
We decided to go all ‘buggy’ for this months sock, with all of the gardening we are doing at the moment it is not a surprise that we have spiders and bees on our brains!!!
The above photo is one of my favourites that Emmms took on Wednesday, I love the little spider just popping its head out of the welly!
The idea for this pattern came to me when working in my garden on a bit of a cold afternoon. The amount of spiders that I unearthed that decided to crawl up my legs whilst I tidied up the weeds and rubble began to unnerve me and I am not one to be scared of a few creepy crawlies in the garden!
So the crawling spider knee socks were born, having these cute little bugs creeping and winding their web up the front and back of my leg is a lot more appealing than the real thing!
‘Charlotte’s Web’ is the tenth pattern to be released under the Loumms Year of Socks. It is also available on Ravelry as a free download, but for now you can download the pattern for Charlottes Web here.
