Gingerbread Dude Socks!

Two finished objects in two days - woohoo me!



I *love* these socks!

The Particulars:

Yarn: Blue Moon Socks That Rock Silkie in 'Gingerbread Dude' colourway
Needles: Size 2 bamboo dpns
Pattern: Ann Budd's basic sock pattern. I lengthened the ribbing a bit - about the only modification.
Time: It took a couple of weeks for these socks, but that was in between working on other things.

I will definitely be buying this socks yarn again - it is so soft - hardly feels like there is wool in it, and the colourways available are so pretty. I can't wait to wear these to work in the new year and show them off!

Ooooh now those are pretty! What a great colorway! It translated into fabric excellently from the hank.

The color is beautiful and lends itself well to a basic sock pattern!

They look great! I've seen that colorway in the hank on many blogs and have wondered what it would look like knitted up. Very nice!
