Zig Zag Ribbon Socks

Here are my latest socks for my husband, they are done in Colinette Jitterbug, colour dusk. I have designed the pattern using the Zig Zag Ribbon from Barbara Walker, they were done toe up on 2.25mm needles.

I did make it to Woolfest on the Friday, despite the weather it helped that I was in Lytham St Anne's Monday - Thursday, so was over half way there. It would have a shame to have come home instead of continuing up the M6. I was reasonably restrained, but here is some photos of my goodies:

Roving from the Yarn Yard at together with a Bosworth spindle:

Of course more sock yarn from the Yarn Yard:

I also picked up a skein of Jitterbug, very pretty and similar in construction to Socks that Rock:

I also got some baby alpaca roving:

And the most gorgeous organic wool in Aran weight from Uppingham Yarns:
