Mandorla Socks Vintage Purls



This pair of socks is the first installment of The Vintage Purls Winter Sock Club. It is the first pair I have done toe-up, and the first time doing the heel like this. They look a little funny, but are so well fitting!
I cut the heel off somehow in the photo - it is actually nice and round like the other one.

WOW!
I think they look wonderful. As a person still struggling with knitting socks, I can really appreciate the workmanship in this pair.!
Well done!

The second installment of Vintage Purls Winter Sock Club arrived today but I am going to wait til I get home, put the heater on, make a cup of tea and then I will open up the parcel and see what Morag has got for us this time!
