Christmas socks

These socks were a Christmas gift to one of my step-daughters. She has such an eclectic nature so the colour was perfect. Collinette Jitterbug in Jewel colourway. What a gorgeous yarn to knit with. Although I didn't swatch and used needles that were too big so whilst the socks turned out perhaps larger than normal, I did make sure I did the length for her little feet so she was over the moon.

The colour in the photograph doesn't do justice to the vibrancy of the yarn in real life. I used Anastasia pattern, which is a toe up pattern, but I'm not ready for that kind of challenge so I did it top down and reversed the pattern. Clever chicky aren't I?

Nice job Carol!! (sorry, removed first spam comment!!). Clever you for changing the pattern - that's a sign of a real sock knitter I reckon!
