I finished the Trilobite socks from Wendy's book "Socks From The Toe Up".
The yarn is bfl Echo self-striping from Fyberspates in the colour "Woods", rescued from the jaws of nest-building mice under my bed (eeurgh!)
I used 2mm dpns and knit the large size, which is not ridiculously wide after all - it actually looks quite narrow off the foot.
I really really like the heel construction on this sock - it has all the positive attributes of a normal heel-flap sock but there is no picking up of stitches down either side - it is knit in one piece with decreases either side of the heel flap (toe up, remember).
Would I knit it again? Probably not, because I have so many sock patterns I want to knit... but I will definitely use the basic heel shaping recipe again - love it!
FL is very pleased with them, though they are a bit shorter than he prefers. He even hoisted his feet onto the windowsill for this photo, despite it causing a coughing fit. He is still quite unwell, but we think the antibiotics are working. Fingers crossed.
