Blue Opal Socks...

Blue Opal Socks

I started knitting these socks well before we moved & finally finished them this week. It's slow going with 4ply on 2mm needles.

It's the first time that I've knitted the Spice Man pattern. The fit is great, although I don't love the purled gusset.

I do however like the fake fair isle that the opal produces. I'm hoping these babies will keep my toes toasty when Winter hits, I've been told we will see snow, I guess that's a good excuse to keep knitting.

They look lovely! I love hand knit socks. I'm in awe of your 2mm, 4 ply knitting and the fact that you have TWO socks. As yet I have only ever knit one sock.... I was quite proud of myself, but they didn't love the yarn or the pattern. Shall be trying again once I have a few other projects finished. :)
