Steve's socks


Steve's socks, originally uploaded by the pig wot flies.

I should have posted about these ages ago. They were a Christmas present for Steve (HP's fiance).

Pattern: Top down, 68 stitches, flap heel.

Needles: 2.5mm circs

Look at the little sheep! They're from the Looking Glass Knits Sheep Yoke cardigan.

This was my first serious attempt at stranded knitting. I'm pleased with it. The white portions were done as two colour stranded knitting and the black bits were added with duplicate stitch.

And most importantly, they fit and Steve likes them!

About time you posted but they are absolutely great and Steve does like them very much.
