Something that makes me smile every time we visit Ireland is the way many houses are painted in bright and cheerful colours – what a happy sight, even on days when the weather is dreary. Dingle, a town on the Dingle Peninsula in county Kerry, has lots and lots of coloured houses and for me it's one of the most cheerful places I've ever seen.
The socks are knitted in with rows of houses in stranded knitting; cuff down with a heel flap and gusset. The gusset decreases are done in pattern at the sole. To accommodate the tighter fit of stranded knitting, these parts are worked on larger needles. I recommend the use as a very colourful yarn with a long colour run as the contrast colour.
