This pink pair I designed. They have lace up the foot and a fold over ruffle. They are the last pair of socks that my FIL saw me knitting and he was just fascinated. He would just sit and watch and then he wanted to guess how many stitches were in a pair.
The fit is perfect, just the right amount of negative ease and oh so girly - I love them.
This second pair was knit for JB for Christmas last year. The pattern is called Par 5 based on the designers favorite hole on her favorite golf course. According to her - a Par 5 is very easy. I don't golf, but I thought the higher the par number the harder the hole. Anyway - these were super easy to knit. I did them top down with an after-thought heel.
The main color is Eagles blue and the contrast is a dark grey.
He said they were a wee bit tight going on, but perfect once he was wearing them. The cables add a bit of interest and kept me from poking my eyes out making is favorite socks - a very boring 2x2 rib.
