I finally got around to finishing the socks I started ages ago!

Toe socks

See, the socks themselves were really straightforward, but those toes got a bit fiddly...

Toe socks

A closer look. A little like gloves, getting the joins between toes without holes was difficult, and I've got to say I cheated a bit by stitching up some of them afterwards when I sewed in the ends. The yarn is Knit Picks Imagination in a colourway called munchkin!

To be honest, although the yarn is beautifully soft there's a really noticeable difference between the two balls. And having worn them today, the fabric is a little thick even for between my toes (which do naturally have gaps between them anyway!). The reviews of the yarn on Ravelry suggest that they will felt really easily, which is a worry. Guess I'll find out! I think I might keep them for lazy winter weekends with slippers. Chalk them up as an interesting experiment, but I probably won't be churning out loads of them!
