Red Anklets - Finished!

Yarn:Lana Grossa Meilenweit Cotton (41% cotton, 39% wool, 13 Poly, 7% stretch)

Pattern: My own, but I used the short-row heel from Cat Bordhi's video.

Needles: #1 Quicksilver dpns.

These photos are actually of the same socks. It's amazing how lighting changes colors. The color on left seems more true. I liked Cat's short row heel, once I got the hang of it. It might fit better in my shoes than the flap heel.

But oh my! Have you seen Cat Bordhi's new book? Really, it is quite amazing and I think every sock knitter is going to want one.

This is going to take a bit of time to digest and put into practice. I have some projects ahead of it, but have already started reading it.

Oooo - beautiful Lorna's.

Congratulations on your clean bill on the skin cancer - I've been a hat/SPF gal for a long time now.

Nice socks! I love the red. And, I know I for sure want to get my hands on the new Cat Bordhi book! :)

Your socks look great! Congrats on creating your own pattern too.

I have not yet seen a copy of Cat's new book. I fear that it will be "over my head" but I will probably purchase it anyway. Very curious!
