Socks!



I














I finally finished my kool-aid dyed socks made with yarn shown below. They are a little thick but are fine to wear with birks or clogs. I used the "Bell Lace" pattern for the cuffs. The yarn overs are a little larger on the one side but with variegated yarn it's hard to tell. I'm not sure why that happened but I have been known to knit patterns bass-ackwards from time to time. I also did a yo, k2 tog pattern repeat across the toes for "vents" so that my tootsies don't over heat ;-)

Great idea about the heat vents for the toes, might have to borrow that when I make some wool socks for myself!!

Oh, nice ventilation detail, that's so original! Adds a nice twist to the toes:-)
