Finished Socks




Here they are finally finished! I did something different with the heels on this pair of socks I did the Eye of the Partridge Heel, which is an option with this sock, and I loved it. It gives you a really nice heel. You just have to try it.

The Eye of the Partridge Heel

Row 1: Sl 1 Purl wise, *K 1, Sl 1 Knit wise, repeat from * until last stitch, K 1

Row 2: Sl 1 Purl wise, Purl across until last stitch, K 1

Row 3: Sl 2 Purl wise, * K 1, Sl 1 repeat from * until last 2 stitches, K 2

Row 4: Sl 1 Purl wise, Purl across until last stitch K 1

Repeat the 4 rows 7 times for a total of 28 rows. Then repeat rows 1 and 2 once more. Now it's time for the heel turn of your choice. Posted by Picasa

Your socks look very nice! I think I have some of that yarn in my stash. It's the first sock yarn I bought and I still haven't used it. In fact, I still haven't finished my first pair of socks. :)Maybe in a month or so...
