Squeaking in some more



Just squeaking in some final finished objects for the year.

When I stumbled across these socks (rav link) I knew just the person that had to have them, of course her little feet would be swamped in adult size socks so some adjustments were in order.

Stats: Tardis Socks
Yarn : Araucania Ranco Multi (blues), Knit Pick Essential Sock ( now Stroll, soot kettle dyed) and Patons Kroy Socks 4 ply (cream)
Needles: 2.5mm a betweener size US
Mods: cast on 54 stitches, worked k2,p2 rib for 10 rows, only worked Police Box wording on front half of sock, carried the contrast color all the way around using a stranding method, fudged the stitch count for both the windows and the textured leg pattern which I reduced in row height....
Next Time thoughts: make the textured leg pattern narrower and shorter still to allow for the full 4 pattern repeats.

I hope the little girl who loves the Doctor will love her socks!
