I seem to have been knitting these particular socks forever and am quite bored with them, I finally finished off the second toe just now and am pleased to be done. They are straightforward socks, following Lucy Neatby's pattern in Cool Socks Warm Feet, with a short row heel. The yarn is Opal sock wool in Sugar Almond Lilac
They are - how to put this - a little snug. But safe in the knowledge that the Opal yarn gives a bit in the wash, I am hopeful that the fit will be perfect.
