I made these for a swap. My partner asked for something cosy to wear while she read, so I came up with these slipper socks. If anyone's interested, I could write up a pattern.
(Terribly sorry about the blurry photo. My camera is rather bad.)
My partner studies geography, so I chose colours that reminded me of maps. The colour pattern itself was inspired by globes. You have no idea how long it took me to come up with something I liked that didn't require me to either float the yarn for more then four stitches or weave in a billion ends. I rather like the end result, however, and it was a really fun knit. The yarn is also really fantastic.
I like seeing the insides of stranded projects, so I thought I'd show you mine. I'm pretty happy with my floats. This was only my third stranded project, so I'm very happy about the lack of horrendous puckering.
And here's an action shot. Now, the picture is by the receiver, antarcticraft, because these were huge on me. She did give me the permission to use her photo, though.
