These are the 2nd and 3rd pairs I've completed. Working full time, it takes me about a week per sock, so 2 wks for a pair. I used Kroy 4ply on sz 2 bamboo dpsn. The cream colored pair has the eye of partridge heel, with parts taken from about 3 patterns to make up the design. I'm totally addicted to sock knitting!

Very nice socks. For having just started doing socks it sounds like you are being inventive already. That's great. You must have a gift.

Thanks everybody for the kind words of praise! I doubt I have a gift. Surfing the net for socks shows me pretty quick that I'm a rookie. It took many failed attempts and one huge meltdown before the light went on and I finally "got it". Now it's a snap! I learn something new with each pair and apply it to the next ones. I was forced to learn if I wanted warm feet at work. I searched and searched, but retailors don't stock nice wool socks for women in Georgia. A new obsession was born from necessity!
