Primavera Sock

Primavera Sock

Pattern: Primavera Socks by Natalja (Ravelry link)

Yarn: Mountain Colors Bearfoot (Wool, Mohair, Nylon) Color: Harmony-Iris – most accurate in top picture.

Needles: US 1 (2.25 mm)

Started: 23 March 2009; Finished 15 June 2009

Modifications:

I made it slightly smaller with 5 repeats of the pattern.  I fudged the heel the first time, but worked it out the second time.  Both look good:

I am not sure about the toes and, if I knit more top down socks, I will have to work on these:

They are very comfortable, but obviously too warm for July.  I was worried that the mohair would be annoying but it just seems to make the socks very soft.
