Prydain socks

The Chronicles of Prydain socks. The Chronicles of Prydain is a fantasy series focusing on a young boy named Taran, and his coming of age. It is actually a very engrossing set of novels, and I enjoyed them very much.

I chose white yarn for these socks, because Hen Wen, the oracular pig, is white. I liked this pattern because it is simple, like the characters in the book, but has a touch of royalty. The yarn is a heaver weight than is typical for socks, giving them a rough look, like I imagine the clothes of poor Taran to be. The pattern is Brigid.

The yarn is Soft Wave from Queensland Collection, purchased at Rose Tree Fiber Shop in Ames.

For the record, I did not enjoy knitting socks with a 100% cotton yarn.
