Started 12/08 - finished today. (I wasn't faithful to them and got 2nd sock syndrome - however 2nd sock was knit in 3 days - yesterday I knit from the heel flap to 1/2 way through the toe.

Reggia Silk sock yarn in cream - used 74g. 2.5mm dpns. Knit to fit size 4 1/2 to 5 UK foot size. I did shorten leg to accomodate my tree trunk ankles.

Check out mega fungi on Laburnam stump!

Wait--you finished *both* socks in four days? Dang. They look great.

Jo said...

They look lovely Peri, they actually look tiny, although I'm a size 4.5 to 5 too.

Annie said...

Those socks are just gorgeous! Was the yarn as nice to work with as it looks?
Glad to have you back in blogland.

Jo - they are a perfect fit and my sock blockers are a UK size 5. It's most likely due to the fact I'm crap with a camera.

Annie - Reggia silk is gorgeous to work with. I've made three pairs of socks with it so far and have no complaints.

Chemgrrl I wish! No I knitted the 2nd once of the pair in 3 days.
