Guiness Socks

At long last, some knitting content!

Some time ago, I bought some Schaefer Yarn “Anne”.  I’ve now knit
up a pair of socks using the the black and tan colourway.


A few meetings passed by as I worked on a pair of Feather & Fan toe-up socks, from Wendy‘s pattern, yielding:

I used just under half the skein to make these (small foot!). 
Unfortunately, I think I’ve decided they are about an inch too short;
survivable, but not going to be my favourite pair of socks.  I may
have to see if there’s just enough more-than-half left in the skein to
do another pair a bit longer 🙂

Knit on 2mm needles, these are fairly fine socks — fine enough to wear
in leather lace-ups, which means they’ll be part of regular office wear.

Oh, and there was the question of whether I was attracted to the
colourway because of the resemblance to our cat:
