    My latest knitted socks just make me smile every time I look at them. My last two knitted socks, were first yellow and then pink, and the wool reminded me of Battenburg cake. Then I realised that I had enough left over for a pair of Battenburg ankle socks.

    I knitted these without a pattern. They are toe up (because I was worried about my small supply of wool). The only tricky part was to make sure that the check pattern repeats the whole way around the foot.

      These are really cute and I love that they were made with yarn that could have ended up in a leftover collection!
