The yarn is a standard sock weight (4ply, Fingering) which was dyed for me as a gift from my friend Nana (Diana) in Heidelberg, Germany. Aren't the colours lovely?
I knitted them using the Andersson Method of construction and the Andersson Heel Mach II. Each sock was knitted on it's own 2mm circular needle, one Knit Pro (KnitPicks) and the other Hiya Hiya.

They turned up more stripey than I intended,

good to know, for future dye attempts, they are yummy looking though, just like the ice cream variant I had in mind for the colours :-)

Thanks for posting their picture, and enjoy wearing them.

First thing I thought of ... Neapolitan ice cream - YUM! Not that I have a real foot fetish or anything, but I agree - they ARE yummy looking. How on earth did you dye them so the stripes came out so evenly? Nice job, both dyeing and knitting - thanks for sharing!

Wow! They are wonderful! Nana certainly has a gift for dyeing and of course we've known for some time that you have a gift for knitting. :-)

The socks look great, Colin! Nana's dye job is fabulous, no doubt they are Neopolitan.

They're beautiful. Just curious...How long does it take for you to knit a pair of socks? You seem to whip pair after pair out incredibly fast!
