I was so happy to realise I don’t have enough handknit socks for spring! Naturally, I made sure to rectify this as soon as possible. Thanks to a long flight and plenty of hours chatting with family, I got this:


It is sock #1 of my tried and tested mindless pattern: CO 56 stitches (yes, small feet, thin ankles), with short row heels over 30 stitches.
