The First FO of 2012

Here's my first finished object of 2012. A bit like the food most of us have been eating for the last post-Chrimbo week, they are leftover socks.

They've been on the go for yonks, and almost finished but I was dithering over the cuff colour. The teal green of the toe and heel felt too dark for the cuff.

In the end I used a smidgen of my Old Maiden Aunt Put on the day sock yarn which I think compliments the colours in the body of the sock, which is Misti Alpaca sock yarn.

The toes and heel are Lang Yarns Jawolle, the name of which is a work of genius. I've used the nylon thread that comes with Jawolle in the toe and heel so I'll see how well they wear.
