Kiwiyarns Knits

A blog about New Zealand yarns, knitting and life



Hand knitted socks made with hand dyed yarn are pretty.

They’re also comfortable.  So very comfortable and cushiony.

They are the ultimate luxury for feet – they’re custom-made, so they fit your foot. Perfectly.  (These are a bit small because they’re not for me).  They’re warm, but also cool, because they’re made from wool.

The wool is elastic, the sock hugs your foot in a warm, gentle embrace and that makes them even more comfortable.

Gift no.1 is complete.  🙂

Knitted with Fibre Alive Merino Mania sock yarn, in the Double Happy colourway.

I have to put my old, machine knit socks back on again now.

I think I need more pretty, new hand knitted socks for me.

  1. Those socks look lush & lovely !
    The contrast with machine-knitted ones is quite..big.. ( though no intend to insult your outfit of course.. ) 😉 I guess if you don’t need the buffer weeks in your tight knitting scheme, a socky gift for yourself would be nice too… ?

  2. Yes you do … I hope you get to knit yourself a pair soon! xo

  3. They are beautiful, and what an excellent name for the colourway!

    I am working on the heel flap of the first sock that I have ever made. I really hope that they turn out ok as I am so fed up with store bought socks with a seam over the toes and too-tight ribbing at the top. I shall pick them up right now and carry on, in fact.

  4. I think you do too. More hand knit socks for everyone!

  5. Love the yarn colours! They’ll definitely make for happy feet.
