Raspberry Azure, FO.
Yarn: Colinette Jitterbug in Raspberry
Needles: Bamboo dpns, 2.50mm
Pattern: Azure by Deb Barnhill
Started: December 2007
Finished: January 2008
Notes: These were my first FO of 2008 and toe-up socks ever, and I'm pleased to report that they were relatively painless. The patterned heel flap was a little clunky (but still lovely) the first time round, but by sock no. 2 it just zipped right by.
Everyone thinks that these socks are actually cabled! The surprise on their faces when I tell them that all that twisting is done with clever increases and decreases is priceless.
I couldn't ask for a nicer pattern to take the edge off the somewhat crappy yardage of the Jitterbug. Now I do have another skein of it lurking in the stash...
