Needles: 2 x 60cm length 2,5mm Addi circulars
There is a lot to be said for small projects done mostly in one stitch...these were so quick to make and required almost no attention at all. Although I did have to cheat a bit and cut the yarn as the black started pooling at the widest part of the gusset. During the gusset decreases the pooling stopped (the foot circumference at that point must be just the same as the colour lengths, because it happened on both socks) and the striping sorted itself out.
And so, on to the next project, which surprisingly is not something that I've been planning for ages, but something from a pattern that only arrived yesterday but is way too cool for school. Or something. Anyway, all will be revealed soon!!
And in the meantime, to get you in the retro mood and for anyone who was a teenager in the 80s...have a ganders at this lot that my MIL donated to my pattern collection. They were published in 1985 and I, for one, would have killed for any of these outfits at the time. Wham-tastic!
