Socks that Rock - Seastone


I present you with the first pair of Socks that Rock that I have completed, along with what was left over after knitting for size 9 feet.

Size 2 double circulars were used. Basic Sock Pattern. CO 56 stitches.

Love the yarn - great to knit with. Don't like how I did the heel flap - think I got flap happy with it.
Also think I would start off with size 1 needles at the top and then change over to size 2s down the leg. Tweaking for personal sizing.
Now I think I am ready to venture out into some other sock patterns. I would like for the toe shaping to be a little different so will work on that too.
Son has now requested for me to make him a pair of socks, but he thought these were a little loud and "girlie" as he called it. He wants some more neutral colors. Imagine that...
