Shigure Socks

Shigure Socks

Yarn: Lorna's Laces, Colored Berry
Needles: Boye's Double Pointed Needles, #2
Pattern: Feather and Fan lace socks from Socks Socks Socks.
Time spent: Casted on around January 15th, finished January 22nd: approx. 15 hours.
Additional Info: When I finished the first, I tried it on and could not bring myself to take them off. The yarn is wonderful, very soft and warm with a slight halo. I encourage everyone to try Lorna's Laces at least once. A skein will make you a sock, but if you have small feet like mine and use a conservative pattern, you may get away with all of one and a little of another.

These were made in memorium of my betta, Shigure, who passed away in the winter of 2005/2006. His fins were of very similar color, though his body was a pale pink with blue dots. He will be missed.
