So my partner for the make a friend swap has finally posted so now i get to post here!

The socks i knit for her are called Paraphenalia socks the pattern is here they are made from Stroll fingering weight by knit picks in pine these socks are the same size its the funny camera angles that makes them look like one is bigger ^_~

The other pair i made for her are out of the book personal foot prints by Cat Bordhi they are the basketweave socks. the yarn is by knitpicks its stroll hand painted in tea party these were fun and scary to knit as you knit the foot as a tube then cut the yarn and open the knitting to pick up stitches. scary but a ton of fun!

Thanks for looking!
