FO: Persimmon eyelet socks

I started these in March, whipped out one sock and got bored.  It languished on my desk until I had time off for surgery, when I picked it up and slowly worked on it.  Turns out "slow" finishes things faster than "not at all", and you can knit lace while on controlled substances if you go slow enough.

Persimmon eyelet socks.

Pattern: Personal mashup using double eyelet rib
Yarn: Crystal Palace Yarns Panda Silk Print
Needles: US1.5 (2.5mm) magic loop
Duration: 13th March to 16th September 2010
Ravelry project: Persimmon eyelet socks

These are for Lara, and they should have reached her by now.  They're bright and cheerful and cool enough for Nashville warmth.  I started with a hemmed top, put in panels of double eyelet rib, an Eye of Partridge heel flap and a grafted toe.  I know they'll fit because we have the same size feet.

I finally got a sock blocker.  Just the one.  This is the first picture with it.
