Why yes, my toes really are long and pointy. Although, I suspect that the angle from which this photo was taken has exaggerated them somewhat. But never mind about that, let's look at the socks!
These Santa Fe socks - or Canada Post socks as I've come to think of them - are done. They're not my most-favourite-ever, but I did learn some very handy things with these socks. I really like this double start double thread cast on. It's a nice change from a ribbed cuff. For these socks I knit the colourwork panels on larger needles; I'm very pleased with how that worked out. And I'm pleased with those little bands of colourwork around the feet; they give these socks a little something extra, don't they?
I'll be on the Road to Oslo next. This next pattern is a short pair of boot socks knit on 3.25mm and 3.5mm needles ... shouldn't take any time at all! Maybe later today I'll have a look through the stash to pick yarn for these. Now we're off to enjoy the warmer temps and the sunshine. I'll catch up with everyone later today!
