Blue Ginger socks

Thanks to Astrid and Trekking ProNatura along with size 1 KnitPicks circulars, these socks are now off the needles. I called them Blue Ginger because of the incredible blue, it's almost sapphire blue, and the pattern which is sometimes called gingerbread. Notice I didn't use any ribbing? Done toe up, the pattern was on the top of the foot and the entire ankle and had enough stretch to be it's own ribbing. I just did a stretchy bind-off, as I always do for socks and voila. New socks. Now to wash them and see if they bloom and I lose some of that incredible cable detail.

Beautiful colour , Diane. Pattern looks good too. I have just knitted my first tow up and am getting near casting off and expect i will use the Zimmerman sewing needle cast off.

They look great! Are those Ginger's feet or yours?

Diane Thornton said...

those are my feet, Ginger's are a bit too short and wide to flatter that fabulous sock pattern so I opted for mine.
