I knitted like the clappers and finished these Tardis socks in time for wrapping for Christmas. Yarn: Waikiwi from Naturally Yarns, merino, possum, alpaca and nylon, 4 ply. The first hand knitted socks I've made and they'll probably be the last. Can't believe how long they took to make. I used steel needle size UK13 (2.25mm) and UK12 (2.75mm) which had belonged to my grandmother and then Mum and I couldn't help wondering, as I knitted, how many pairs of socks had been knitted on those needles. I had printed instructions from Yarn Harlot's post December 24 (the proper way to receive a knitted gift) in case they weren't greeted in the correct manner but I needn't have worried, a big smile, socks on feet all day!
