Finished socks

Time to show my Lavender Socks. It took me ages to knit them, not an easy knit for me as I had to look at the chart several times for every single needle. But so worth the effort!

They are from the book "Socken aus aller Welt" from Stephanie van der Linden (I don't know if the english version "Around the world in knitted socks" has exactly the same patterns), in which are a lot more designs I want to knit!

I used Regia sock yarn (splitting) and my short 2.25 mm needles.

Here's a close up of the toe and I am curious to feel if the ribbing is as comfortable as plain stockinette stitch.

And the lavender "blossoms":

Thanks for coming over!
