my eleanoras

my eleanoras, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

I started them in October 2007 and I can't remember when I finished them. I was still knitting them in December 2007, I remember that. Anyway, they're done now.

Pattern: Eleanora by Miriam Felton

Needles: 2.25mm and 2.5mm circs

Yarn: Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock in Berry. A Christmas present in 2006 from Debs and HP.

Notes: Knitted exactly as written, on needles 0.25mm bigger than those suggested in the pattern, these come out exactly the right size for me. Which is very pleasing. I love the charting of the toe, it makes the patterning continue all the way to the end, decreasing gradually and logically. Which is also very pleasing. The only change I made was an eye of partridge heel rather than the straight slipped stitch heel specified. Just because I like it and it matches the texture of the not-stripy panels.
