Brown, ribbed socks are finished.
Pattern: Lichen Ribbed Socks from Knitting Vintage Socks
Design: Nancy Bush
Yarn: BC Shetlandsuld, 100% wool
Yarn source: Litet nystan
Needles: 2 mm and 2,5 mm dpns
Started: 2 December2012
Finished: 20 January 2013
Modifications: I made them slightly bigger to accomodate Stefan’s feet. Instead of 60 sts, I cast on 68 sts. Because of this I had too many stitches to make the star toe so I made a regular flat toe instead.
To prevent wear on the heel flap, I made some reinforcements.
Stefan was very happy to recieve warm socks now when we have a really cold winter.
