More Socks

Another pair of socks hot off the needles for the Resident Radiologist.


The yarn is Regia Crazy Colour, bought at Woolfest in the summer. I've gone back to my standard feel flap pattern for this pair as the afterthought heels didn't fit him too well.


The regia yarn is lovely to work with - this is the first time I've used it - it's springy and smooth and gentle on the hands (which is something that couldn't really be said for the Lana Grossa in the last pair).

I've currently got Wisp on the needles but the progress is slow as I'm using Brittany birch needles and the KSH tends to stick a bit on them. I want to make two Wisps as Christmas gifts though so I need to keep plodding on with them...

Hi there
Sorry i just thought that you might be interested in my website since you were creative too. Didnt mean any offence by it. I have only been posting my site where i think it might be valued.

Oh I like those socks, very pretty, I haven't used Regia, I shall have to keep an eye out.

Thanks for your comment on the blue stuff. I am almost finished the knitting now but still having trouble picturing myself wearing it, we shall see....

Hi - I will not be able to come to knitting because my German classes are going to be on Wednesdays - hope to come along to the one before Christmas, but can't say for certain.
Hope all is well with the house!
