Socks!

I got some sock yarn to dye for Bendigo and decided I had better make myself a pair of socks. These really are my first pair of socks and I did them top down, two at a time.

I'd dyed them a nice red/raspberry colour and the yarn was a pleasure to work with.
The make up is - 60%Super Merino/15%Nylon/15%Bamboo/10%Silk. It's super soft and although I had reservations about how the socks would wear at first I am actually enjoying them.

LinkThe pattern was nothing complicated an Ann Budd pattern (here on Ravelry) from one of Ann's books that Mum gave me for Christmas.
Very happy, must get back to making some more socks.
