La Fin

  Pattern: Diamond Check Sock bought in a moment of madness!

Yarn: Yarn Yard Bonny

Colour:  Asphalt, specially dyed for the Tour De France Knitalong.

Needles: 2.25mm

Started: 6th July

Finished: 22nd July

Remaining Yarn: 2gish, impossible to weigh!!

Should you be foolish or some may say brave enough to attempt these socks be warned.

These were fairly straightforward to knit despite the look, 46 mitred squares per sock, an afterthought heel and toe. I guesstimate there were appx 30 ends needed hand sewing in, the others were ‘knit’ in. Glad I joined the knitalong as this pattern had been in my folder for about a year and would probably have remained there forever more.


 Jane I am now looking for a big enough frame as I am not confident about my sewing!

Going to see Mama Mia tonight, himself is coming but is concerned I’ll howl sing in public! Maybe I’ll dance instead, I am a child of the 70’s after all.

Enjoy your weekend.
