Lithuanian Amber Socks


The socks are finished! They came together after two hours in the car. Hooray for road trips, they make for fabulous bouts of knitting time! (Except when he makes me drive, inconsiderate man!)

Pattern: Lithuanian Amber Socks from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks
Yarn: Shepherd's Colour4Me
Needle: Inox size 5, which put me right on gauge.
Notes: I stepped down to a size 4 for the heel, which made the heel ridiculously small and I had to rip it out. I also had to increase the number of stitches picked up along the gusset by two on each side to make the heels fit better.
