FO: Oyster Ridge socks

The last Oyster Ridge sock took no time to get off the needle. In fact, it was done the night after I posted!

I can’t take all the credit for it. It’s a combination of easy lace (four row repeat with only one row of actual pattern), sport weight yarn, and the fact that I have small feet and like short cuffs.

I didn’t realize it until I took them outside for pictures, but the colour is a pretty good match to Rupert. Funny – I never think of him as being a butterscotch colour, but he really is!

Despite how well they look with our little gingerpuss, they are for me! And the pattern looks much better stretched out on a foot than it does on blockers.

In fact, I almost ripped them out when knitting the first sock, because I didn’t like how it looked. I’m glad I stuck with it.

You don’t really see those delicate little scallop shapes until it’s on the foot.

Now… onto the gift knitting!

    Pretty! Is that one of your patterns? Maybe you should use the butterscotch left overs to make some socks for Rupert. (He’s a pretty kitty!) Do you think he’d wear them? Ginger sure wouldn’t!
