Vanilla Latte Socks

At last I have finished a knitting project - some socks for myself. The pattern I used is called Vanilla Latte Socks by Virginia Rose-Jeanes. It was easy to follow, and has a choice of heel turn and toe. I used the Eye of Partridge heel, and the Rounded Wedge Toe. The wool I used was Drops Fabel - Light Grey (115) 2 x 50g, bought from Wool Warehouse.

I am really happy with how they turned out. Despite these pictures, I am really not lounging about that much on a hammock, but need the socks to wear inside my wellington boots when gardening. I slightly regretted that I did not make them a bit longer. Always seems to be my problem when I am knitting socks cuff down with a limited supply of wool. So hard to judge how much you will need for the feet. But the left over light grey will always come in handy for something (perhaps some vehicle wheels).

Just a reminder that there is still time left to join in my Ginx Woolly Linx party for July. Click on the photo above or at the top of the page to find the party. I would love to see what you have been working on this month.


  1. very nice and comfortable socks

  2. These look nice! Never would have thought to wear my crocheted/knitting socks while gardening - I always save my pieces for special occasions, hehe. Love the gray, and the simple pattern!


  3. Gorgeous! I guess you'll just have to knit yourself another pair? thanks so much for sharing on craft schooling Sunday!

  4. I like your socks. I understand about the length. I've started knitting toe up, but I still am not sure how much to save for the cuffs.
