World Cup Socks – FO

Last night I finished my Dutch World Cup 2010 socks.   They are a perfect match and perfect fit.  Now that they are done, well in time for the Netherlands’ first match (14/6) I might add, I will put them away and not wear them until that day.  Actually it’s too warm these days to wear them anyway!

I think I will probably wear them with the cuffs down.  I made them specifically to wear this way.

Man my feet look huge in these photos!

These socks were made from Regia World Ball, Holland colorway.  The pattern is Spice Man by Yarnissima.  Size 2.25mm needles throughout.  They were a really fast knit.  I made them in exactly 1 month, working on them almost exclusively on the train to and from work.  This is a super easy pattern – kind of a basic recipe – from which you could modify as you like to make your own unique socks.

I’m going to make my own unique socks as my next sock project.  The June SKA KAL on Ravelry has already started and I’m already 4 days behind!  The challenge this month is DYO (Design Your Own).  I’m going to use some beautiful Tosh Sock in colorway Ink.  I’m going to use a pattern stitch from Nancy’s brioche book, modified to knit in the round.  It’s going to be GREAT!  Photo to come once I have something to show.
