Snowflake Socks

My very first attempt at fair-isle/stranded work:

Pattern: Snowflake Socks by Chrissy Gardiner from Interweave Knits Fall 2007
Yarn: Cleckheaton Machinewash 5-ply in blue and white.
Verdict: Lots of fun to knit, and much easier then it looks!

I agree... WOW! Those are lovely, fantastic job for your first try at stranded knitting! Your "one pair a month" resolution seems to be going strong so far. They are ALL lovely! Thanks for stopping by my blog, also!

They are gorgeous & I love them. This pattern has been on my list & I even bought the yarn but somehow I have not pluck up the courage to knit them toe-up. Great job!
