Knitted Christmas Presents #2

Two pairs of socks were gifted away this Christmas.

These are the fabulous Gentleman's Shooting Stockings by Nancy Bush made for my father. I really like the stitch pattern which makes the socks a bit more sophisticated than regular, plain men's socks.

The yarn is soft like a dream (contains silk) so I'll definately use it again.

Pattern: Gentleman's Shooting Stockings with Fluted Pattern by Nancy Bush from Knitting Vintage Socks
Yarn: Regia Silk 4-ply by Schachenmayr nomotta
Needles: 2 mm

The second pair are these striped socks, almost knee length, for my niece. She's 5 years old so I thought she would like these color tones.

Pattern: None
Yarn: Ranco Multy by Araucania and some gray sock yarn from my stash.
Needles: 2,5 mm

The socks look lovely! Regia Silk is such a great yarn, huh? I should remember to use it more.

Yikes--how did I end up 3 posts behind?
Happy (belated) 2009! All the Christmas gifts are lovely--I particularly like your take on the Silk Kerchief. Hope your niece likes her socks! (I would, but mine is not an unbiased opinion ; ) )
