FO - Two Pairs of Socks
*** I added a new photo taken outside in the daylight!***

Apologies for the bad photo, it was dark, rainy and gloomy outside so I had to use the flash inside.



The pair on the left are plain, using self patterning wool from Sensations Soles and More (JoAnn's own brand), so cheap and cheerful but I love the colours of this one. The one on the right has a pattern to it, but you can't really see it. It's knitted in Permier Deborah Norville wool and I really didn't like it, too stretchy and impossible to maintain tension. They came out larger than I wanted but still wearable. The pattern was by Clara Parkes and was in a British knitting magazine.

So you're saying it was a dark and gloomy night? The stuff nightmares are made of!

Beautiful socks though!

The great colors on both those socks help brighten things up. They're both lovely and the yarns work well with the patterns..

The only difference between an experienced knitter and new knitter is that the experienced knitter makes bigger mistakes faster. Be bold; there are no terrible consequences in knitting.

Every time I look at your socks, I like them better. They'll certainly be nice when...
It was a dark and stormy night...

I discovered the pattern is actually free on ravelry for the pink patterned pair. Maybe I need to try it again using the right weight yarn, it looks so nice in the photos, totally different from mine!
