Socks from the vault
These three (in theory) pairs of socks were the first socks I made, back in '05. I was particularly inspired by self-patterning yarn at the time, and the Squeeze's large feet were just the thing to show off the self-patterning Opal elemente yarn and the ringels Regia yarn to perfection. Given the hard wear and machine washing they have endured over the last few years, they've held their shape and colour remarkably well. The pattern for the Opal elemente sock was a freeby from The Wool Shack that came with the yarn. The pattern for the two Regia ringels is Patons Town and Country sock pattern.
