I'm a little bit obsessed with Amy Miller's new mini-sock patterns, and have been working on a pair of Jimmies in between other projects.
Because knitting Jimmies made me even more obsessed with the other three mini-sock patterns, I sent off yarn to Ravelry knitter, Mommajnine, for a pair of It's A Gansey, another of the patterns in the set. Ganseys are sweaters with distinctive local patterning, which this sock pattern mimics, and to kick up up just a bit, I sent four different colors of yarn to use for the sock, rather than knitting it as a solid.
The yarn is Elliebelly Blue Faced Leicester (BFL) Constant, dyed in Dear Theodosia (Green), Muslin (Neutral), Lady Mary (Blue), and Lost Coast (Salmon Pink).
Janine, who is the most amazing of sock knitters, turned the yarn into a pair of It's a Ganseys, quicker than I can turn the heel on a sock! Here they are in all of their loveliness. I adore how she aligned the colors.
I'm enjoying knitting my Jimmies and encourage you to pick up some sock yarn and knit a pair of Amy's socks. They are the perfect quick little knit to make sure that you don't forget yourself in the middle of holiday knitting for friends and family.
