I really liked the stitch pattern for these, which came from “Knitting Vintage Socks” by Nancy Bush. I wasn’t so keen on the toe or the heel used though, so next time I make them, I think I’ll do those differently. Given that these are only my second pair of socks, I just wasn’t brave enough to try anything different with these ones.
The socks are being beautifully modelled in the photograph by Steven. The good news is that I’ve managed to get them back off him and pack them in my suitcase to take them to Glasgow this weekend. Hopefully, I’ll find some time to pop in and see Gran and Papa and give Papa the socks. They’re only two months late as a birthday present!
