patriotic socks

irish flag socks, for Owen

Yarn: Schoeller + Stahl Fortissima Socka shades grass, natural, mango
Needles: 2.5 mm bamboo dpns

Have finally fulfilled son’s order for Irish flag socks.  And I found out what the problem was with the first pair I made.  I was weaving in the ends of each colour as I went along, by stranding as for fair isle etc, but was taking it too far along the row and so making the fabric too tight.  So, I should be able to cure that and then son will have two pairs of tricolour socks in time for his holidays in Ireland.
