Cast this project on during the week as a quick palette- cleanser after finishing my Gaudi cardigan. Just using my basic vanilla sock pattern which came free an aeon ago with a ball of commercial sock wool. I work on 60 sts, cuff-down, heel flap, barn-style toe.
Socks completed. I set them aside for a while to work on my Inigo cardigan, then decided to focus on these and get them finished. Worked them a bit shorter from cuff to heel than I usually do which made them super-quick to complete.
Note about the yarn – I find the Mr B Yarns hand-dyed sock yarns are among the finer-gauge sock yarns and I knitted these on my 2.5mm needles which means they are suitable for spring. I think I will go down to 2.25mm needles for my next pair of socks.
