Sock No5





I knit this with 72sts using two circs. I cast on, long tail(not thumb) with 3mm, knit the 40 rows of 2x2 rib with 2.25mm and then knit 60 rows st st with 2.5mm, knit the short row heel then knit 60 rows before toe shaping, then cast off inside out.

The yarn is by Opal and is a Limited Eedition Hand Dyed 75% wool 25% nylon.

Looks great - and very encouraging as I'm halfway through a sock in this yarn too - present for a (male) friend's birthday!

Fabulous colours!! :-)Is that like my hand dyed Opal?(pic on blog) mine says 75%/25% so perhaps not. Looks divine anyway, can't imagine SSS with yarn that delicious :-)

I really like how the colors stacked and formed a pattern. Glad to hear you aren't frogging the whole thing after the short row heel.
