WIP Wednesday

I've only got two active WIPs this week.

The first one is a pair of socks made from Knit Picks Stroll fingering weight in the Country Fair colourway.  One sock is done, and I'm on the leg of the second.  This pair will go in my Etsy shop once I've got it opened.

Here's a better look at the colours:

Aren't they gorgeous?

The second WIP is also socks (surprise).  These ones are made from Knit Picks Felici in the Teacup colourway.  I'm working on the heel of this sock.  I'm still using the Basic Ribbed Sock pattern, but I've modified it.  Instead of the heel used in the pattern, I'm using a modified eye of partridge heel.  It makes the heel denser, and hopefully more resistant to wear.

These ones are for me, and will get added to my sock drawer for the coming winter.
