Knitted these this week for my aunt who's always got cold feet and in need of some more socks than the ones she's using now, that's starting to look a bit sad about being used allt the time.
I finished a bit quicker than I had planned, knitted the first sock this monday, the second I finished wednesday morning on the bus, and then I had an entire lecture without any socks to knit, so I started on matching wristwarmers from the left-over yarn.

This is how it all turned out:

side-view (I really like this way of knitting toes and heels, it's so nice to not have to bother with knitting seperate pats and picking up stitches or having a seam-like thing by the toes):



now all I have to do is sneak them in to her bedroom, leave them on her pillow and hope she likes them =)

wow, you knit fast. Smiley very nice socks - are they toe-up with short row heels? that's my favorite way to knit socks, too. Cheesy

I do hope you're right everyone ^^

Alligatorjuice- I have no idea what toe-up and row heels means, but these are kind of tarted with a crocheted chain of stitches by the toe, then knitted from there, going round the toes and back up and then one simply picks up the stitches by the crochet chain and continues with the rest of the sock. And then te same with the heel, only of course one doesn't need the crocHet chain there ^^

I like that heel, I never actually do socks because I hate the heels, but for the life of me I can't figure out how it's done! Could you maybe explain a little, or is there a tutorial somewhere you followed? I'd really appreciate it!

Love the cable up the back of the sock!  Great color, too.
