Not the Mata Hari's

Pattern: Found Here

Yarn: Lang Yarns JaWoll superwash (75% new wool, 18% nylon, 7% acrylic; 45g/190m +5g reinforcement yarn) 2 skeins color #10
Needles: US 0/2mm double points
Gauge: 20 sts & 14 rows = 2 inches in stockinette working in the round
Info: These were knit from the toe up. The pattern is a 30 st repeat and I had 80 sts. For the top of the foot I worked the chart once and then when after I turned the heel, I worked the pattern twice and added ribbing between the pattern repeats. Initially I thought that I was knitting the pair of socks that were shown along with this chart (shows you my attention to detail). They took a while for me to finish and that is because this was the first time I used US 0's. I do have to say they are soooooo comfy though.

Toe Socks

Pattern: My Own

Yarn: Cascade Fixation (98.3% cotton, 1.7% elastic) 1 skein #3077 pink lemonade & 1 skein #2406 lavender

Needles: US 4/3.5 mm double pointed needles (set of 5)

Info: These toe socks were made from the toe up and used short rows for the heel. Ideally I wanted to make the socks a lot longer, but I ran out of the pink. The next pair I make will be a lot longer.
