Pops of colour in knitting can only mean one thing – bobbles.
I made Bali Pops with randomly placed bobbles using yarn that reminded me of the batik fabrics I used for patchwork quilting. In the second pair, Raspberry Seeds Socks, the bobbles are sedately lined and down the fronts and backs and the colour contrast is sharper.
Other than the colours and bobble placement, the socks are constructed the same. Both pairs feature twisted-rib cuffs, honeycomb heels with a square turn and shaped toes. To complete my nod to quilting the words on the soles are from a favourite quilt label.
