Winter Socks

I didn't have the correct weight yarn in my stash to do these socks so I altered the pattern for fingering/4 ply weight yarn. The white is some yarn that I've had for some time. The blue is called Stormy Skies by Flutterby Creations.

I wasn't too sure about the stranded colour work when I first got the pattern. I really struggle to get the tension right. However, I did like the snowflake on the heel flap and thought that was a lovely design element. I knit these for my husband and he likes how they came out.

Thanks go to Tama for the pattern. I'm looking forward to next month's challenge ;)
