Nordic star socks

Well, what do you think?!

I love them!

Nordic star socks designed by Jan Malone from the Vogue Knitting Ultimate Sock Book.
I used 2.75mm needles; the orange yarn is Jawoll sock yarn, the grey is Jaeger Matchmaker Merino 4ply (sadly discontinued).

I used a whole ball of the grey and started into a second one, but only needed one ball of the orange. My tension was a bit different on the two socks - can only just squeeze the first one on, but by the second I'd obviously loosened up a bit and it's much easier to get on!
