Now it's official - I dislike knitting Fair Isle even more than cable pattern! I'm no good at it. See the left sock? It's the second one. It's a bit larger for two reasons. First, it's still wet (I blocked the first one right away, so it's dry already) and second I knit the leg part way looser then the first sock. Even though I don't especially like this technique, I think the socks look awesome. They were made for my daughters boyfriend. He is tall and has huge feet. I hope they will fit.
I usually don't knit with 2.75mm needles with 4-ply sock yarn, it's way to loose for my taste, but I needed this size for the leg part. Why I didn't change needles for the foot part, I'll never know. I usually do, but this time I just knit on. I guess because I was in a hurry to finish them, since I have to mail them by tomorrow.
I made the cuff 20 rows and used the German heel, but other than that, I did like the pattern asked for, even three repeats of the fair isle pattern!
I'm glad they are done, on to the next pair. Thanks, Anni!
I forgot to mention the yarn I've used: It's Fortissima Socka, 75% wool 25% polyamid.
