The yarn is Stylecraft Head over heels which I bought from a new wool shop in Church Stretton. I am a sucker for a chat in a yarn shop with a nice owner and so left with a ball of sock yarn.
I used the October sock pattern which is free on Christina's blog A colourful life. It is so well written and I found it a breeze.I did a little change on round 1 of the pattern section - I made a full wrap around of the yarn as the last stitch before the purl 1, knit 6 rather than just bringing the yarn forward. It depends on what style of knitting you do but look out for it anyway if you use this pattern and find out what works for your knitting style.
The heel is the most comfortable one I have knitted on all of the socks I have made so far.
So the moral of this post is: don't put things off, have a go, 'You won't know until you try it!' Good Luck with trying to get your children to eat Sprouts though:)
One of my crafting resolutions for 2018 already gone. Yay!
