FO: Wharfe Socks

Just a quick post today to report on the socks I finished before I went on holiday. These guys just flew off the needles, mainly due to that excellently just-addictive-enough lace pattern. I really enjoyed watching them grow, and thinking about the little stream in my parents' garden.

When I was little, I enjoyed imagining where the water in our garden flowed. Our little stream (or beck) flows off the moors, through our village and into the River Wharfe. The Wharfe flows through many picturesque towns and villages, and through Tadcaster where the water is used for brewing beer, and no doubt past some former wool and cotton mills. It then joins with the waters from all over Yorkshire to travel through York, passing millennia of history. From there it flows south to join the Humber, go under the Humber bridge and out to the big blue sea.

Lovely socks, though knitting them may have made me a bit sentimental!
