The yarn is Robin 'Print' DK :mrgreen: I got 2 balls of it and it looks like I'll get another pair (which my mum has claimed) out of them :cheering:

I used the 'toe up on 12 circular needles' tutorial on here --> http://www.cometosilver.com/socks/

Once I got past the heel I accidently reversed the stockinette so I just carried that on until I got to a point where I wanted to start ribbing. I duplicated the accident in the second sock so it became the design :teehee:

I love that you made a mistake and made it a design feature, that's just the way I do it :P They look great!

Were they hard? They are nice! I haven't tip-toed out into the wading pool just yet.

They weren't as hard as I thought they would be. I think I would have found it a lot harder without Silvers tuorial though!
