The essential facts:
- Pattern is an eight-stitch basketweave affair from the immortal Sensational Knitted Socks.
- Yarn is Angel Yarns hand-dyed 4ply sock yarn in Chocolate Plum. I absolutely love its tweedy appearance, with flecks of purple & brown. Perfectly titled shade. Delicious.
- Knit on 64sts, on two circs of 2.5mm. Heel flap on 32sts and wedge toe.
I started these in April, unbelievably, and they are a long overdue birthday present for my dad.
