Okay, so was disappointed at John Lewis yarn sale, all the good Rowan stuff gone, so decided to finish off a WIP!
Yarn is Artesano Hummingbird, think the colourway was Love Bird, will need to check (probably discontinued!). Bought this yarn about ...ahem.... years ago at K1yarns in Glasgow, started various sock patterns before settling for this one.
Pattern is from One Skein Wonders book, by Judith Durant - marvelous book have knitted quite a lot from it. Still have a good amount left after finishing these socks, may make a corsage from the remains.
Don't like showing off my (spam coloured) legs, so jeans cover the top a little . Its a broken garter stitch, which makes it nice and sqishy, knitted from cuff down, and after heel is knitted, yarn is broken off , and then gusset knitted from "top" needle - I changed that so technically was knitting it inside out, still worked out .
Would definitely do this pattern again , love it, a winner !
