Another WIP off the list!

But this time, it's because I've actually finished them!

Here are the Raindrops socks from the June pattern from Simply Knitting/Fyberspates sock club.

They knitted up quickly, but I'm not sold on the fit of the short row heels. The July pattern has short rows too, with the same weight yarn, so I think I'll be tinkering a little.
The colour is lighter than the picture shows, with the grey actually looking more lilac in good light.

I wasn't sure of the stitch pattern originally, but it's really grown on me.

Pattern: Raindrops by Eleanor Doyle at
Yarn: Fyberspates space dyed 100% Blue Faced Leicester sock yarn in Blue Lagoon (I think it was 100g, I just kept knitting until I ran out!)
Needles: 3.25mm Addi DPNs
Modifications: I kept on knitting, then used a 2 stitch picot cast off so it would fit comfortably.
Cast On: 5th August
Cast Off: 18th August

There's an acronym I didn't expect - 'SKE' here saying you're right up there with me in the sock knitting stakes. Love the raindrop socks. Enjoy Copenhagen and remember, when it comes to space in the rucksack for yarn, his stuff is easily replaced once you get home!
