Rainy day surprise

It’s been a very rainy day but I refuse to acknowledge it. Instead I keep wearing my summer dresses and laugh at the rain. However, did think this day to be appropriate to deliver a pair of socks and some chocolate to a dear one. Rain equals socks somehow and we all know I usually start thinking about socks in August.

I made these socks this spring (I know, weird, socks in the spring but this was a very weird spring indeed) and I really think the color looks like a spring evening and the pattern, Business casual as usual, never disappoint me. The socks have been delivered and the recipient, even though she has already gotten so many socks from me, looked very happy. It’s certainly her colors, and paired with the chocolate it was, in my opinion, really nice surprise gift. (Although I’m not sure how much of a surprise it can really be when she picked out the yarn herself even if it was back in March and even if it was a spur of the moment thing.)

Pattern: Business casual by Tanis Lavallee. Yarn: Zauberball from Schoppel-Wolle, color 2308 Smoking Area. No mods.
