Trystero Socks

I've finally finished them! In actual knitting time, these didn't take that long because I had to do half a chart, or a full chart at a time. I couldn't just do a few rows. But after casting on the second one, it languished for weeks, while I tried to get over my second sock syndrome. Well I did eventually and the second one came on pretty quickly.


Pattern: Trystero Socks from cookiea.com
Yarn: Plain blue 4 ply from John Lewis
Needles: 2.25mm
Changes: I did a short row heel instead of the heel flap because I don't like heel flaps.



The verdict: I like them a lot! They are tight to get on, but once on they're a great fit.

And here's another dog photo, this is Holly-pud, now 6 months old but still very cute. This is the stare of "It's dinner time you know".

The socks are great -- but aren't all CookieA's designs?

And I'm in love with the puppy...

I love them - what a great colour :)

What other pattern did you choose from CookieA? I wish she would do a book, the online mag that is coming out has some of her patterns, yay!

Beautiful socks and such a great colour. I love solid socks (apart from the boring gray man-socks I'm working on right now).
I really have to learn how to do short row heels. Heel flaps don't really do it for me either.

Yup, I know that stare!

Your socks are beautiful! I tried that pattern, and it was too hard for me! I just might have to try them again after being inspired by yours!
