STR Tide Pool sock #1 complete!



Now to make another one. :)

Specs:

Yarn: Socks That Rock in Tide Pool colorway
Needles: US 2 DPNs for leg and foot; US 1 DPNs for heel
Gauge: 8 sts/inch on US 2 in stockinette
Pattern: Basic stuff - 64 stitch cast on, 2x2 rib, slip stitch flap heel, decreased/grafted toe
Measurements: 6" from top of leg to start of flap heel; ~8.75" instep circumference; 10.5" foot length (to fit my size 11 feet!)

I wanted to let the yarn make the pattern on this one and I like the result. Hope the second one comes out as nicely!

Is it possible that the STR makes your foot look smaller and delicate, or will we have to wait to see the pair on parade?! Happy knitting.

That's an interesting color combination. I'm sorry to say, that my package still has not arrived. :o(
