Ricky!


At last these socks are finally finished. They have taken a long time to knit. It's another great from the talented Cookie A. A pattern with a lovely twisted effect made for DH but he couldn't get his foot through the cuff - despite changing needle size to get a bigger fit.
These also took longer to knit than expected. I've never frogged a pattern so many times! The twisted stripe changes direction through the clever use of left or right leaning decreases and my brain took a while to adjust to the pattern. Now they are finished I'm wondering which ones to make next!
