Sockity socks socks

~Socks all round!! Here are some pics of lopi socks I made for my sister a couple of months back when she'd had an operation on her foot. The pattern is Joan Gooth-Buchanan's Fireside Socks from Spin Off's Socks. It knits up really quickly and is great for using up all sorts of odds and ends. I've got another pair on the needles at the minute for boyfriend's birthday (eek which is tommorrow so better get cracking on them). This time I matched up some of the remainders of the North Ronaldsay grey aran with a skein of Jamieson's Shetland double knit - so they're Northern Isles socks for sure as I brought both yarns back from Orkney and Shetland trips in various years!
