Okay I know I'm getting my classical literature mixed up, but this is sock related (surprise!).
I frogged the first attempt as I decided that they were never in a million years going to fit me, and started again on needles one size up (2.5mm). I'm still not entirely convinced that they'll go over my ankles (particularly the manky one), but we shall see. If not I'll just have to give them away (sob).
Started them yesterday afternoon and carried on at Knit & natter yesterday evening. Seem to be the sock lady now (was doing my Jaywalkers at the last one). Someone had brought along a copy of the spring Interweave Knits magazine, there are some great patterns in it. I may decide to subscribe!
Anyhoo, here's the detail of the stranded pattern on the socks, I think this yarn suits it quite well, but you have to be very close to get the best effect, don't think anyone gets that close to my feet.
God, dontcha LOVE those colours?
