Not so hot off the needles

I finished working on these yesterday afternoon, and I'm really pleased with the way they turned out. I'm also happy that I've finally managed to graft a sock without looking at any instructions. :)
They're knit in Trekking XXL, shade 106. The colour changes are quite subtle as there are at least 2 colours plied together. I knit the larger size, on 2.5mm bamboo dpns. I changed the toe shaping, and decreased at the end of each needle.
Thank you for the pattern Anni - it's great. I love the heel flap stitch, and will make a note of it for future socks.

Love the socks! I just got some trekking xxl but it is in a dark colorway. I can't wait to use it.
