Strega's Needles & Hooks

This is my little piece of cyber space where I rant or rave, depending on my mood. Postings are whatever interests me at the time. Life with an Italian in Switzerland is interesting indeed! CLICK ON PHOTOS TO SEE ENLARGEMENTS

This is my second attempt at these socks. The first attempt hit the frog pond when I saw that the Opal Cotton wouldn't stretch to fit my big foot with the recommended needle size. Of course it wouldn't stretch! It's Cotton, dummy!
I switched from 2.25 mm to 3 mm. Now it seems the sock is a little bigger than I wanted, but is acceptable and feels lusciously soft on the tootsies. Live and learn....
You can find the pattern here.
