My foot makes a better display model. :) To answer a few questions. The socks are made with Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock yarn. The colour is Iris Garden. I knit them on size 2 dp needles (I use all 5 needles). I made them a woman's small (shoe size 5-7). It took me about 5 days to make these, working on them for several hours every afternoon and evening. I knit both socks at the same time; first the cuff of one sock, then the cuff and leg of the second, then I go back to the first sock and knit the leg and heel then switch back to the second sock. I continue in this way because when done I have 2 finished socks and both are the same size. I have about an hour's work left on this pair before they are done! I've never used this yarn before but already like it.
