I managed to match up the stripes almost perfectly. I had to break the yarn in the second pair near the start to make sure but I don't think I did too badly
I tried an afterthought heel for these which I blogged about here. It fits quite well although I'm not too happy about the holes. Not bothered enough about them to sew them up though *lazy*
I wish I'd made them a bit longer but I was worried about running out of yarn for the heel. Maybe next time I could use a contrast yarn for the toe and heel and have really long striped socks :-D I'd do them top down though so I could make sure the heel started in the middle of the stripe rather than slightly further one side. Not a problem really though.
I loved every stitch of making them, my favourite colours, stripes and a simple pattern, perfect.
Linking up with FO Friday, Fiber Arts Friday and Creative Friday.
Have a good weekend everyone, enjoy the sunshine if you get some :-)
