Finished Socks

Thanks to Melbourne's weather (hot and/or humid) there's not been much knitting of late chez OzKnitter.

However, these are finished...



Yarn: A Christmas pressie. It's Pink Cottage yarn, exclusive to Fringe

Needles: 2.50mm and 2.25mm bamboo DPNs

Pattern: Garter Rib from Sensational Knitted Socks

Thoughts: I loved this yarn! The subtle colour variations are a delight. When I first saw the yarn, it looked blue with occasional green and burgundy splotches. In actuality there are blues, greens, purples, pinks, burgundies and a little brown; simply gorgeous. Interestingly one sock is "bluer" and the other more "coloured", showcasing the reason why I, and many sock knitters, love handpainted yarn... no 2 socks are alike (even when knitted from the same skein).
