Knitted to use up the leftovers of this colourful wool, and also using some Patonyle's sock wool in airforce blue; the colours on these socks remind me of a springtime flower bed against a stormy blue sky. Such a pretty mix of crimson, white, coral, primrose, apricot and green. Very sadly the blue Patonyle's wool doesn't stand up well to washing in the machine and these shrank when once I hadn't taken care to switch the machine to a cold cycle. (head slap) Grrr! Usually I remember this very important step in washing my hand-knitted socks! (Did I mention the twenty hour thing? Not lately? Then let me just slip in that fact again, yes, twenty odd hours of knitting...you would think I'd be more careful)
They now perfectly fit my daughter, who accepted them into her sock drawer and is modelling them here today. Can you tell she did ballet as a littlie? That pointed toe!
