The way a world is revealed to you
Shortie socks for a sweet friend. These were directly inspired by finishing the green lacy Christmas socks for my sister. I used the same Heirloom argyle sock wool and the same lacy ribbing pattern, this time for the whole sock - what there is of it.
Don't they look a very awkward length, laid flat like that?
They make more sense on the foot. A tiny bit tight for me, and so I hope the right size for my friend with slightly smaller feet.
And what a lovely reaction they got. She seemed genuinely really excited and pleased to receive 'some knitting'! It was too way hot at the time for her to try them on, so I just hope they ended up fitting well.
