Finished Fabel Footwear

My Fabel socks are finished and I'm pleased with the way they turned out.  I'm normally very particular about making the socks identical.  The striping doesn't match exactly, but I've decided that, this time, it's close enough.


Yarn:  Drops Fabel Superwash from Garnstudio
Color #547 - black/brown/gray mix
(the picture is a little too yellow as the socks were photographed under a regular lamp)

Needles:  US #0/2.00mm double-pointed

Size:  Ladies' Medium

Pattern:  Generic
1x1 ribbing, stocking stitch legs and feet, short row heel

This picture better shows the colors in the socks.

These socks were knitted with the new, to me, needles that I found at Wool-Tyme in Kingston.  They are my new favorite sock needles:  very comfortable, warm to the touch when knitting, not easy to bend and the points are just the right amount of sharpness.  I liked them so well that I phoned and ordered another set.

Again, the picture is too yellow. I should have opted for natural light.
