I'm so excited to be able to blog about these socks. I'm thrilled with how they came out. These socks are a part of the Great Sock Gift Project 2011-12 and are for my beautiful sister. They are an interesting rib that are supposed to bring to mind the hedgerows of country England. An idea that was a little bit lost when I chose lobster coloured yarn. But I love the colour and I love how the rib goes right down the back of the heel.
They also have a rounded toe rather than a wedge toe which I find quite appealing.
I've gone a bit overboard with all the photos. But I just love love love these socks.
I've ravelled the socks here. And the free pattern is available here. I should mention the designer is called Jane Cochran and I think she is just so talented. These are currently my favourite textured socks - a bit more interesting to knit than a basic rib but not too hard.
I was also knitting them at the same time as I had these beautiful roses. And I think I must have a thing for this colour at the moment.
