Mirabella Socks, done!

Finally, Mirabella Socks are done! Well these were actually finished late in December, but just haven't got around to blogging it. Now here they are!



And side view:



Pattern: Mirabella Socks by MJ at yummy yarn
Yarn: About 1.5 balls of Elle Pure Wool 8-ply from Lincraft
Needles: Brittany Birch 3.25mm (US 3) — love these needles!

Because of the thicker yarn used, I had to adjust the pattern a bit, and unfortunately I couldn't fit in the pretty honeycomb pattern on the sides. The sock is 46 sts in the round all up.

These are the first pair of socks that I've ever knitted, and I really really love it. (Thank you MJ for sharing the pattern!) I think it will get a lot of wear when the weather gets cooler.

More thoughts and notes in my blog.

These look great. 8 ply? Should be really cosy in winter. I made my sister some socks in 8 ply and she loves them.
