Arne & Carlos Pairfect Pair Knit Socks

Another pair of socks to celebrate fall! It's overcast and yucky today, so we're inside watching Breaking Bad. Can you believe Alex has never seen it? It's been so long since I watched it, so it feels a little new to me too.

This is another pair of Arne & Carlos yarn. I love how easy it is to get a pattern on these. I recommend this yarn if you don't want to deal with colorwork or if you just want a colorful pair of socks with very little effort.

Pattern: My usual cuff-down pattern, following the instructions on the yarn label

I did quite a bit of sewing over the summer, but I wasn't great at updating. Here are just a couple of my faves.

Pattern: Moneta by Colette Patterns
Fabric: Doodles Hedgehog Knit Fabric from Joann

Alex's Fall Arne and Carlos Knitted Socks

Fall finally arrived today. It was more than 90 degrees on Thursday, and I was worried it was never going to happen! Alex celebrated with a pair of socks I made a few months ago.

Pattern: My usual cuff-down sock pattern
Yarn: Schachenmayr Regia Design Line by Arne & Carlos 4-f├Ądig in 3764 Orchard

This is not the Arne and Carlos yarn with the starter color, but this one works just as well as long as you're comfortable making your own pattern. I'm going to make another pair similar to this for my dad for Christmas this year.
