The Grumpy/Sunshine Socks are the second pair of socks in the Golden Honey Sock Club, a quarterly mystery sock pattern club where all the patterns are named for romance tropes.

A contrasting cuff, heel, and toe provide visual interest and break up more intense yarns.

What You'll Need

-280-440 yds (256-403 m) of yarn -Needles for your preferred style of small-circumference knitting in a size to meet gauge (I used US 1.5/2.25 mm) -A stitch marker -A tapestry needle for weaving in ends

I love a good grumpy/sunshine pairing, which is where one half of a couple is an incorrigible curmudgeon and the other half is overpoweringly cheerful. Many of us carry elements of both personalities within us, and they emerge at different times. It’s extra fun to explore how that dynamic plays out when love and longing get involved.
