Ta da! Here are the completed socks for my SYAC Spring Feet Sock Swap!
The yarn is Heirloom's Jigsaw 4 ply sock yarn. Colour #33. Lot #940.
I chose Heirloom because it's an Aussie company (even though this yarn was made in Italy), and as they're going OS (overseas, but I'm not saying where) I wanted to use yarn that was as Aussie as possible.
The pattern is from Issue #14 of Creative Knitting and I made a couple of changes. I used 2.50mm needles instead of the 2.75mm the pattern called for. I felt the 2.75mm made the rib too 'holey' and 'loose', after I'd knitted an inch or so. I also used the Jigsaw instead of Opal (Heirloom = Aussie and I know the recipient likes these colours... I hope!)
Anyway, they're ready to be packaged up and make their way via Airmail to their new home! I do hope she'll like them!
