Serenity Socks

Ages and ages ago, so long ago in fact that he couldn't even remember choosing the colour, I agreed to make my friend P a pair of socks. These were worked on in a burst of activity because I enjoyed designing the first one, and then abrubtly abandoned in a fit of excitement over some new project. They remained unworked on for about a year (sorry P) until I had a phase of finishing off old projects recently.

Here they are completely finished and posted and modeled by P. I sent them as a valentines present so having decided to finish them in time about a week ago, I had to work quite hard to get them done in time to post (P has relatively large feet). Sadly Royal Mail doesn't keep to deadlines in the same way, and the socks, posted in plenty of time for valentines day on Saturday, arrived today. :(

The apparantly fit very well, though P did express some surprise over this, much to my constrenation! He did somewhat redeem himself by explaining that "hand knit socks look different, the heel looked a bit funny", so i'll forgive him for his momentary questioning of my knitting skills, as he hadn't seen a heel flap sock before.

I'm pleased with hte way these worked out, and even more pleased that P likes them. I pointed out that he now has a knitted hat, a jumper and socks, so he could wear all three together if he wanted to.

Pattern Spec:
My own - I called it "Serenity" because the cables are Firefly cables.
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Copperbeech
Needles: 2.5mm Purple pins
Modifications: None, it's my pattern.
I hope you enjoy wearing them P! Happy Valentines Day!

Just so you know, they are really nice, really warm and really comfy.

My friend Shuggie - bottom picture - likes them too.
