Okay, here is my second FO of the New Year.
I did finish the first of these back in September but here is the completed pair.
Looking around the blogs I am not the world's worst for finishing the second sock, but I'm not up there with the greats who completed 17 pairs last year (oh as well as beautiful colourwork).
These are made from Fortissima Colori Socka Color from Schoeller + Stahl in shade 2416. Everyone who sees them seems to like the heathery shades.
They are loosely based on Marietta Rib socks from Lucy Neatby's Cool Socks Warm Feet. I have totally cribbed this from my September entry when I finished the first one!
There is a cable running down each side of the leg and if they don't look identical, it's because they aren't -I was afraid of running out of yarn so I went for the fraternal twin look. I don't have the most delicate of ankles (or shins!) so I like a roomy first few inches.
I am pleased with these overall, more pleased that they're finished than anything else actually, but I think I may just be catching on with the grafting of the toes.
I still have a few more pictures of various things up my sleeve but I think I may save them for next week when I'm back at work and don't have the same luxury of time.
