Seabury Socks

Finally the Seabury socks are finished.

I had asked on my Yahoo lists for suggestions for "two needle" socks as for some reason double pointed needles just don't seem to like me - and a couple of suggestions were for the Seabury socks (pattern can be found here). 
At the end of the instructions it says "This odd looking piece is a sock", and it was pretty hard to believe, but yes, once sewn up they are socks....

Next time they need a smaller needle if I use the same wool (hand spun Blueface Leicester/Alpaca mix) as they are slightly too loose, plus I would make the legs a bit longer.

Just beautiful.......yes, mine turned out a bit too large with my regular sized needles, too. Still, they are so squishy and comfortable to wear!
