Pomegranate Socks

And then there were two.

The socks ended up lovely, although they are a tiny bit snug.
I'm sure that will sort itself out when I wear them for a while. If I knit them again, I would either go up one needle size or knit the larger size, just to have a little more give. I only knit two pattern repeats for the leg, rather than five, because I was pretty paranoid about running out of the Hazel Knits yarn (again.) I ended up with a fair bit left over, so I probably could have gotten another repeat or two in there, but they would also need to be a bit bigger around, if they were much longer, so perhaps it's for the best, anyway.

I knit them one at a time, on two circulars instead of on double-points. It's the first time I knit socks on two circs, and I have to admit that I found it a bit fiddly. I kept finding that the needle not in use would get tangled up with the other one. Perhaps I just need more practice. I'm sure other people would consider using five double-points to be fiddly, if they weren't used to it.

Cute socks. Warm feet. Now, what's next?

It's so nice to see them both together on their home environment (your feet!). Pretty!
