The next instalment of Mina’s Around the World in 8 Socks collection, we’re visiting Rome! I picked out one of my photos from a holiday to Rome which I think represented the colours, the green of the Palatine hill and the reddish sandstone of the Roman architecture. I used leftovers of a 202 Christmas colourway from Stranded Dyeworks which matched quite well, although the stitch pattern got a bit lost in it.

I really feel like I’m nailing the perfect sock construction for me now, as well. I did these with 15 rounds for cuff, 3 pattern repeats for the leg, Short row garter heel with 8 rows mini-heel flap, 3 pattern repeats for the foot, round toe.
