I was making these for my son to give to his bride to be for valentines day. I wound up grafting the toes just as she pulled up. Thank God they are done, I just do not work well under pressure anymore. The left sock I did first, and my fibromyalgia fog kicked in and I didn't carry the pattern all the way down the leg. But I am sure she will love them anyway.
I used wool from Italy and I can't find the paper so I don't remember what brand. I used size 2 dp needles and it took me the better part of two weeks to finish them.
They have a partridge heel , and that was very interesting. I really like it.
