I totally forgot to show you 2 pairs of socks I have finished recently and not so recently.
The Gander socks have served their warming purposes in December, right before or after Christmas. It’s the first heel flap sock in years. I loved the stripes used in the pattern, which would be more difficult to make with the short row heel. So heel flap it is and I love the fit of it!
The leftover sock yarn socks were finished a little bit early – October I guess – but I never showed them. It’s a plain sock pattern with short row heel and alternating sock yarn stripes with the gray yarn as a means to tone down the colorfulness. This way it’s totally ok to mix random colors – the gray makes everything look smooth and matching.
