Pretty Socks

A friend was visiting and admired the boys hand knitted socks, and was say how she would love to to have hand knitted socks.  I did have some ladies socks I'd made, but they were too big for her.  She is tiny, so I found a couple of balls of this yarn and knitted a smaller pair.
I haven't done this pattern before.  They have a longer leg with a diagonal moss stitch pattern. All we need to do now is wait and see if I've done the right size.

I do hope they are the right size as the colours are lovely.

Beautiful colors. What a shame to put them on feet.

I almost done with my second pair and this time I used a very soft bamboo yarn...it is almost the same color as the ones you are showing...

These are very pretty. Hand knitted socks are always a lovely gift. I'm sure she'll be delighted.

These are so pretty. I never could get the hang of sock knitting. I still have a pair that i started stuffed away in a cupboard somewhere after I got stuck!!
