Fiesta Socks

I had such a lot of fun knitting these socks. The tutorial was easy to follow and very informative and I have plans to knit lots more in the future. I am planning to dye some sock yarn myself specifically for this pattern. I was unaware that clear boot existed until Lucy made an offhand comment at the end of the video and I decided to investigate. I bought a pair for an online site but the given measurements were incorrect and the boots didn't fit when I got them. I was really disappointed. I searched again only to find that each site had sold out or only sold the smaller sizes. Today I was at a local market and wandered by a stall full of gumboots and my eyes fell on these.......Eureka!!!!!! It has been worth the wait, and winter has only just started here so they will get plenty of use and my socks will get plenty of attention. As they deserve.
