Boot Socks

I've finished knitting the boot socks. Interesting how the hand dyed wool came out stripy. It's an optical illusion really, the eye joins up small white bits to make narrow white stripes that aren't really there.

Have a look at Tat-a-girl's version of my simple earrings pattern. They look really good!

  1. Your socks look very comfy! Are they boot socks because they're of a thicker yarn or because of the length? I'm feeling the urge to knit socks, but I have too much going on right now.

    1. The cuff is longer enough to come up above a boot, or that's the idea.

  4. They look warm and cosy, your wool does give a stripy effect which is great
