JOHN'S WINDING ROAD SOCKS

John chose this yarn from my friend Lia's local yarn shop. She lives in Sandhausen, Baden-Wurtemberg, Germany. The yarn brand is Super Soxx. For my conservative husband this is a daring colour! In fact, as he gets closer to April's retirement he is getting more colourful.

I used my own Andersson Sock Construction Method using the Andersson Heel Mach II. I knitted them using 2.25mm circular needles in 60 cm length by Chiao Goo. I find these needles to be the best I have ever used by far. Nothing that I know of compares. I knitted them each on their own needle, knitting 10 rounds on each alternately so that I finished both almost at the same time time and no SSS!

Great socks! A very nice color - a little daring, but still subtle, and a fabulous looking heel.

Great socks. I love that color. What pattern stitch is that? It looks like it would be fun to do.

Colin - you've outdone yourself! They are gorgeous!
I agree about dogs - they are better "people" than we humans are!
