Dunedin Happy Feet Socks

It’s only appropriate I should name these after the city I purchased the wool in and the name of the wool hence Dunedin Happy Feet!

The wool caught my eye as I was looking through the array of yarn for sale at Knit World in Dunedin during my recent cruise around New Zealand.

The pattern is called Make Your Heels Strong and is a free sock knitting pattern on Ravelry.
