Seduction Socks

This is my only Christmas gift crafting I did this year. I had to wait to give it away before posting, just in case the recipient sees it.

Pattern: Seduction Socks (link to PDF)
Yarn: Reclaimed yarn – 43% Rayon, 39% Nylon, 10% Cotton, 8% Angora.
Needles: 32″ US1.5 (2.5mm)

This was knitted almost exclusively as a travel project for about 2 months. I kept it in my purse and worked on it at weekly SnBs and when bored waiting somewhere. I finished pretty quickly, considering. I did work at home on the heel and toe, since those parts are a little more complicated. I even had to wait on the heel because it was simply impossible doing it 2 at a time on one circular. I ended up order a set of sock dpns from Knit Picks just to tackle heel area. I’m really glad I have it now though.

The socks turned out a little snug, but in a good way. It stretches nicely, but I’m not sure of the yarn’s recoverability. Erin tried it on and it seems to fit her better than me, so yay!
