Blue-Grey Socks

I knew before I began the patterned yarn wouldn’t be enough to do two socks without some accommodation. So I only knit 75 rows for the leg, rather than my usual 85 which would let me extend the pattern further into the foot than otherwise. Then I introduced a light grey to intersperse as alternate rows just past the instep to get me as far into the foot as I could possibly go. When the patterned yarn ended I knit a couple rows of grey then brought in the dark blue for the toe, knit five rows and toed off.

A pretty good looking pair of socks.
