I made these for my partner in the be awesome swap because I saw some of my other socks on her Pinterest :-) this was my first go at socks knitted on needles (I've only used a loom before) and I really liked it. I like how it's simple & small enough to do on the train, but the changing colours keep it fun.
I used two different noro colourways, from the tayio 4ply range, and this patternhttp://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/spring-socks
Though I made a few changes; simple ribbed top (instead of the enclosed elastic top it calls for) and I did 3 rows per stripe (not 4). Also, on the second sock I spaced out the reductions a little as I found it got a bit bunched on the first sock.
I'm really pleased with how they came out, and most important I think my partner (the fabulous and naturally awesome pottermouth - photo credits to her) likes them
Thanks for looking!
