"Dancing" socks


These are a cute pair of socks made with Knit Picks' Dancing in Tap. I loved using this yarn and even with the colour pooling, I still like the results. The pattern is just a simple k2p2 ribbed cuff. Knit Picks have discontinued this yarn, which is too bad. I bought another colour to make another pair of socks. The skeins are quite large; I have enough yarn left to make another sock, so it's quite a bargain.

I have some Dancing in my stash I haven't started yet. Yours look so pretty, I may have to get started on mine soon!

Thanks, Emma!! It is nice and don't worry about running out of yarn! I might order more of this before it's all gone!

I have knit with Dancing...but, not the same colorway. As a matter of fact, my socks are featured on KnitPicks in all of their Dancing glory.
I've not been knitting socks in the past month...I miss socknitting when I don't do it constantly, too!!!
I showed another knitter some of your shawls...she was amazed by their beauty.

Great socks! I like this yarn too, I just finished a pair (baby socks, actually). I like the little bit of pooling, it makes a pretty pattern. And you're right about it going far. I will miss it!

I love your socks. I just finished a pair with Dancing too and they are on my blog as well. I love this stuff.
