FO: Shooting Stockings II

I'm back, and I made some socks. You are probably not surprised :)

Yarn: Knit One Crochet Two Ty-Dy Socks, and I think the colorway is Blueberry Fields.
Needles: US1 dpns, set of 5
Pattern: Gentleman's Shooting Stockings, from Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks (I get so much mileage out of this book)

Verdict: I love the way the yarn works with this pattern.  The colorblocking doesn't obscure the texture, and the match of blue-green-yellow and the pattern made a pretty good unisex pair of socks.  They're perfect for the sock gift basket!

Happy Wednesday and happy knitting, gang!

WOW these are great, did you make these yourself. I have made a couple of these but i never get them to look as good as this. I really need to practice more.
