More finished socks for Xmas
Gentleman's Sock with Lozenge Pattern from Vintage Socks in Jitterbug by Collinette. Not quite enough to do the whole sock so I had an angle via Ravelry send me another ball - not quite matching the toes don't look that bad at all in the slight contrast - and Sock Victim does love them. These were a complete labour of love I started them got beyond the heel and he tried them on - they were 1" to wide - so I frogged and started again. Second go got beyond heel and didn't change the number of heel stitches - so had to frogged the the leg. Third time lucky and we had success.
The second pair under the tree was a Noro alternate end of ball stripe. Toe up construction short row heel - a real winner.
