FO: Textured socks
Hot off the needle tips another pair of socks-toe up faux heel pattern.

Used Bendigo Woollen Mills 8 ply classic yarn on 3.25mm and 4.00mm needles.

For the toe stitches I did ‘Eye of the Partridge’ stitch on both the top and the bottom between the increase stitches. Continued 'Eye of the Patridge' stitch on sole only to under the ball of my foot and then again while working the gusset (sole stitches only) and continued through the heel turn and faux heel flap - I love how plush it feels.

Added texture pattern of ‘St John’s Wort’ to the top of the foot and front of leg - a great 4 row repeat pattern which really helps keeping track when having to count rows.

Beautiful socks and pattern work! I love the eye of partridge pattern too for socks, a nice cushy feel. Enjoy wearing them.

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.

Great lookin' foot! I've always admired sock knitters! Everyone says it's easy, but it's fiddley work, and takes concentration and patience. That's what I'm thinking anyway, never having the courage to start a sock!

I love your sock!
