Bless My Little (Wool) Cotton Socks!

Design: 60 Stitch Socks, stocking stitch, stocking stitch heel flap
Designer: Regia (leaflet given with yarn)
Yarn: Regia Wool Cotton (34% Cotton, 41% New Wool and 25% Polyamide)
Colour: 4082 Top Winner

Needles: 2.5mm

Another Christmas gift from my sister - well, the yarn was, I had to do the work! Although my sister can knit - or could - she doesn't, and leaves it up to me and my mum to make stuff for her and The Tot :o) So guess who is going to be teaching said Tot?

This yarn is lovely and soft, and is great for spring and autumn wear, the cotton adds just a hint of coolness. There's not a huge amount to say about these basic socks, really - although I should add that I deliberately didn't try to match them up.

Does anyone have any tips for taking pictures of self plus socks?

I LOOOOVVVEEEE your socks. I'm wearing handmade ones from my friend Sara. She's made me several pairs, bless her. Nothing beats handmade socks in the winter time!
