Out of the pool and into the birdbath

I finished the now pool-free Koigu socks.


Knit with Koigu's KPPPM, in #P309 colourway, which I call sparrow, because the soft browns remind me of this resilient little bird.


Appropriate because these socks are going to my friend Kelly, an avid birdwatcher. Her boyfriend is planning a surprise birthday party for her tonight and it's my job to get her out of the house while the guests arrive. I'm taking her to our local natural history museum to see a new bird exhibition. She won't suspect a thing...

Koigu makes everything look beautiful. These non-pooling socks are great! Your friend will love them.

Love. These. Socks. They're so pretty! And such a great color--browns and bright colors are fantastic together. Perfect, sweet lil' bird-watching socks.

Your Koigu socks look great! It's amazing what a difference a minor adjustment in stitch count makes.

Wow, I can't believe the difference between the two socks. Congrats on avoiding the dreaded pooling!

Thanks for the new category, btw. I'll be including it!
