bracket fungus socks

These beauties are a gift for my sister, who has only ever received a scarf from me before now.

The pattern is a prototype from the lovely Jane Lithgow, which I volunteered to test. It wasn't an especially selfless act, I loved the pattern as soon as I saw it, and couldn't wait to give it a whirl!

The first one took me a week, the second took a day and a half. Second sock syndrome does not live in my house.

I'm off to visit the family tomorrow, and I'm hoping the receipient will be as pleased with them as I am. No worries if she isn't though, it'll save me making a second pair for myself.

Glad you like them - your versions look grand, and thank you very much for testing them. Your advice was spot on!

PS I have a pair on the needles at the moment which remind me of a conversation we had about shoes with goldfish in the heel...

Lovely, and so different from Jane's, even though there is the same olive tone in there somewhere.
You wouldn't like to come to my house and finish a sock for me would you?

They are gorgeous! I love seeing how the same pattern looks in different colours :o)
