FO Friday, more socks!

Oh how I loved making these socks.  I have waxed lyrical about the colours before so I won't bore you again but I remain besotted by them...
The details:  The yarn was Opal Little Prince (7767), the free opal sock pattern is available in most shops which stock Opal yarns (I added the slip stitch heels for fun), my needles were 2.5 knit pro carbonz which I find very comfortable to use.
So there they are, all finished.  They behaved very well during the making process, no unpicking or dropped stitches or any other disasters.  Just a word about my sock blockers, they were made for me by my Father In Law and I love the way the socks look on them.  I had no idea how much difference blocking would make to the finished sock but they came of the blockers looking absolutely immaculate.  If I were the sort of generous hearted person who gave socks away then I would definitely block them first.
It's nearly the end of term and I'm so looking forward to spending some time in blog land again.  I hope you are all well and happy!
