After what seems an age, I've finally got a pair of socks off the knitting needles.
These were started back in April but what with one thing and another, losing my knitting mojo after the death of my dad, they've taken quite some time to finish.
I used the Sugar Frost Socks pattern by Marianne Heikkinen, a pattern I've used before. It's quite straightforward, just one pattern row in every four, but it adds a nice bit of interest to what would otherwise be a plain sock, and just the right amount of pattern for a self striping yarn. Speaking of which, this is West Yorkshire Spinners Signature 4 ply yarn in the Mojito colourway. I've used the same yarn in the Chocolate Lime colourway for the cuffs, heels and toes. Instead of following the pattern at the heel, I put in a Fish Lips Kiss heel, it's such a good fit and always works well with a self striping yarn.
They're a great fit and will be added to my sock drawer, though I don't think it will be long going by the weather we've got at the moment until they'll be worn
