Patterns: Right foot: Gentleman’s Half Hose in Ringwood Pattern from Knitting Vintage Socks by Nancy Bush; Left foot: Garter Stitch Rib sock from Sensational Knitted Socks by Charlene Schurch. Both very easy patterns to remember and good “boy” patterns.
Yarn: Regia Royal, colour Nottingham (I think), 1 x 100g ball – I love this yarn – it has great colour variations and subtle stripes.
Sticks: 2.5mm dpns
Time: It’s been so long, I actually can’t remember when I started these – around October I think. Finished on 7 February 2007.
What I learnt: I did a star toe on the Ringwood socks, which I love – both the way it looks and because it is so easy. It is a longer toe than the normal wedge toe (which is on the Garter Rib socks) but makes a nice shape.
