Knee Highs for my boots

I needed a pair of knee highs for my wellies. I wanted a color and "feel" that would match, and I found Opal's Harry Potter in Hedwig, but one skein was not enough so I shopped my scarps and got some creative solutions. Knit two at once on 2 Addi US1 circ, this process took a while. The yarn is fun to watch transition, so it was not a hardship..... for the foot I used a bit of Austerman Step left over from socks I knit for a friend in 06. I think it works! Now the only question remains whether to wear it up or folded down?

Great pair of Knee highs! I think they look best folded down :-)

What wonderful knee socks. And you leftover yarn couldn't have been better. How about wearing one up and one down??

I love working both socks at the same time on different circulars. It gets rid of that awful Second Sock Syndrome, doesn't it?

And these are beautiful. Austermann Step wears better through numerous washings than any other sock yarn I know.

Happy Valentine's Day, Hila!

Folded down--you should be out on the moors or something. ;)
