Socks, Socks, socks!

This was the first pair of socks I made with 2 needles, and they didn't take long at all. However I didn't like the way you have to sew them up so I haven't made any since. I used Sirdar Hug yarn (2 x 50g balls)

This pair was from a yarn I bought from eBay called 'Yummy Yarn'. I didn't know how the pattern would come out, and I was pleased with the result.

These were also made on 4 DPNs using Opal rainforest 6ply yarn. I think it was Flamingo colour! I prefer the fairisle yarns, but still liked these. I have the yarn in Tiger too :o)

This was the first pair of socks I made and my first time using 4 needles at once. I finished them off in a caravan in Hastings on Bonfire night last year. The yarn was Sirdar Town & Country which I really liked, but unfortunately they don't do it any more.
