Ghost Gum socks
Yarn from my favourite yarn supplier.
It's 85% wool and 15% nylon... Not quite as nice to knit but will suit someone who would like something that wears a little longer. Australian yarn hence the colour name and very apt since this is where I am.
I used this toe up arch shaped pattern. I used my own favourite heel shaping tho.
For the side panels I used Teal goo chart . It looks ok but is certainly asymmetrical!
My usual stretchy cast off requires a sewing needle (horrors!)
The reason I knit socks is there isn't much that has to endure the sewing needle treatment!
I'm even happier now This way is a very smooth edge and voila no sewing needle required!
