Whoa! Hot Off the Needles!

I honestly did not believe that I would get these done in time. I knew I wanted to repeat the pattern all the way down the leg (making it a 9 1/2 inch leg) and I waited until Christmas day to start them. The pattern went really fast once I had it memorized.

I used Patons Kroy Sock yarn in "Chelsea Tweed" and KnitPicks Bare superwash sock yarn. I love the tweed yarn. It doesn't really show up very well in the picture, but the colors are the same as when you look down into deep fresh water lakes--there are dark green and dark blue lines with whitish light blue sunbeams that stream down through the water. Really gorgeous color!

When I make them next time--when I have more time--I intend to carry the pattern all the way down the foot and add a traditional Norwegian toe and sole pattern to it.

Thanks Anni! Another great pattern!
