Yup, there's a really wonky line of stitches down the middle of the left one, but these are the first pair of socksI've made that fit, so I love them despite their imperfections.

Finished at 8pm in Parc Leopold, Brussels on Saturday night - they're from a free online pattern that I won't link to as it's full of errors.

Guess what I started on the Eurostar on the way back today? This time they even have a bit that goes past my ankle.

Sweet nothings

I can finally post this FO, as it's now with my friend H. H and her husband M are expecting thier first baby, and my immediate response to the news was to rush out and but some Artesano Alpaca in a neutral and non-sickly shade.

The pattern is a simple tube, with a row of YOs near the top, tied with a cord.
