FO Friday - Waihi socks

I am thrilled with this pair of socks. The colour, the pattern.... I just love them! I love the way the lace pattern is repeated down the back of the leg

The lace itself is very easy to remember, only 3 rows of actual lace work for every 8 rows of pattern. The simple cables don't require a cable needle so it's actually a really good pattern to knit on the go when you want something you don't really have to concentrate on. If you're new to socks though it's still great because Sarah explains everything really well in the pattern.

I had to do a little modification on these socks simply because I've got big ankles and my gauge was slightly off. They fitted fine on the leg but I had to do a few extra decreases after turning the heel. Not a problem :)

They do fit better on the heel than it looks here! It's hard taking photos of your own feet lol.

Pattern: Waihi socks by Sarah Ronchetti
Yarn: Sparkleduck Spirit in "Mint to Jade"

  3. They look great. The color is awesome. I could imagine how hard it is take take a picture on one's own feet because I tried to take pictures of a hat on my own head.
