Hiiumaa Socks - Finished!
Pattern: Hiiumaa Mates #2 from Knitting on the Road by Nancy Bush.
Yarn: MC: Patons Kroy Sock yarn (Glencheck) and CC: Lana Grossa Meilenweit Color 1298.
Needles: #1 Susan Bates double points.
Comments: The pattern calls for 72 stitches to be cast on, and I followed the pattern faithfully, resisting the urge to add length to the leg. The heel is rather interesting because it does not look reinforced, but it actually does have a unique reinforcing stitch. This is a lovely pattern, and I am now a real fan of Nancy Bush.
