Owl Broad Spiral Socks

Blue & Annie
Broad Spiral Ribbing socks

Pattern: Broad Spiral Ribbing from More Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn: Opal Rainforest 6 ply in Owl.
Needles: 2 x 2.75mm 60 cm circulars.
Method: Knitted cuff down two at a time.
Details: 8 stitches per inch for a 9" wide foot so I cast on 72 stitches. An 'Eye of Partridge Heel' for a very durable heel as they were a present for my MIL who is a keen walker.

They do match rather well, don't they!!! Was it intentional?

Love the combination of yarn and pattern - they go really well together. Eye partridge heel on the to do list now!
And lovely dog - but the cat pictures get me every time - they're soooo cute! (and absolutely beautiful).

That is a lovely pattern and it goes very well with the Owl yarn.
