These socks remind me of that craft.
Yarn: Froehlich Wolle Special Blauband, 80% wool, 20% nylon.
Pattern: My own.
Needles: #1 (2.25mm) dpns
Comments: This yarn came with some special reinforcement yarn for the toes and heels, which I truly intended to use. But when it came time for the heel, I forgot the reinforcement and promised myself I would use it on the toes.
Of course, you guessed it. I sailed right past the toe part--after inserting those colorful little "etchings" at the beginning of the toe--completely forgetting to add the reinforcement yarn. I should have done these toe-up. Maybe that wouldn't have helped.
