That's Scottish slang for didn't they turn out really attractive?
Dead brilliant, they sure did!! :)
I give you the Clan Tartan Socks!
Clan Tartan Socks
Pattern: my own, top down mistake stitch rib on 72 stitches, reduced to 68 for the foot
YO short row heel with mini flap and gusset
US #1 (2.25mm) Aero teflon DPNs
Custom dyed superwash merino in Tartan from Cherry Blossom Fibers
I totally love how these turned out. The color is rich, warm and saturated and the yarn nice and soft. My only complaint is the yarn "tore" in a few places....it just sort of fell apart. This was my first experience with this vendor and I'm not sure what the base yarn is but I admit with the added ends to weave in because of the contrasting ribbing, heels and toes I was NOT at all thrilled to have an additional eight ends to weave in (the yarn broke 4 times!)
In the end, I love them and they are winging their way to Glasgow even as I write this!
I've finished the Lavold tank and it's blocking so I'll have a FO to show off next week and some new projects on the drawing board!
Now I leave you with the P-Man doing a Highland Fling! :)
