Socks almost complete!

I have nearly finished my pals socks and i am so pleased with them! Yes I know its ANOTHER change of pattern, this time its my own pattern, a very scottish stitch pattern too ;) quite often used in shetland lace. The yarn is handyed by me, its 100% merino and lovely and cool feeling.

I am getting quite excited now, its so close to the end and soon these will need to be packaged up and posted off, I cant wait! I am going to put in some extras for my pal too I think but havent decided what as yet.

Heres a picture of the lace in more detail too, I think its a very pretty pattern. I hope my pal likes these socks.

I love the softness of the teal blue. As a Scot, I agree the pattern does have a Shetland feel. Will you be publishing the patter? I am sure your sock partner will be overwhelmed as they are truly lovely.
