Exotic Socks :-)

There are some lovely sock patterns around aren't there. Yet sometimes I find only a basic sock recipe will do otherwise the yarn uses that special je ne sais quoi - yes, I know le Tour is all over for another year but you know what I mean, sometimes a yarn gets lost in a pattern.

These are socks for me, so they are a size UK 7 knitted using 2 x 2.5mm circular needles. The yarn is Regia Design Line Kaffe Fassett # Exotic Pool and I love how it works.

I did make an error with the first sock. I'm still new to using two circular needles, and I muddled when to K2 tog and SSK and so one gusset is slightly different to the other one. I noticed what I had done far too late to set about frogging, so we'll call it a design feature shall we, and I won't make the same mistake again!
