Socktoberfest presents....The Schottish Kilt Hose

All done just in time for socktoberfest. Let the games begin!

Started: September 11, 2006
Finished: October 1, 2006
Yarn: Elann's Devon in Cocoa
Pattern: Highland Schottish Kilt Hose from Nancy Bush's Folk Socks.
Adjustments: A few. I obviously didn't do the turn down cuff and I had to add some stitches to the cast on to accommodate the foot circumference for the recipient. I didn't go knee high...that would have really been a challenge, and I made the foot longer than the pattern.

I really like the pattern in these socks, definitely a unisex pattern.
Another Christmas gift complete!

Thank you all for your kind thoughts yesterday.
