Socks

I finished a pair of socks, 75% wool 25% nylon. Knitted with one long circular needle. 2mm for the rib and 2.25mm for the body. I used a Dutch heel. I like the look and the fit. Not so keen on the way it striped but they are comfortable.

Interesting heel. Is it the same as a band heel?

Hi Colin,

The yarn gives a zebralike pattern and the heel is funny too. Great socks, will warm you in tough times!

I quite like that type of heel and might give it a try on my next pair of socks. Well done for getting them finished during such a tough time. Thinking of you.

Your socks look wonderful. I like the striping.

Your socks look good. I am wondering what the difference is in the dutch heel vs the standard heel flap. I will have to ck but I love the look of yours. They do seem to fit well.

Great job on the socks. I love the way they turned out. What's next?

I think they look great. Love the colors and striping. And of course, your knitting is perfect!

I didn't realize when I left my comment, that you were the same individual who left the kind remarks about my Orenburg shawl :-)
Thanks!
What a small *knitting* world it is!
