Wedgwood Socks Completed

These socks are just lovely and fit me well. Who knew that when I started knitting these I would love them so much? The pattern I was following called for pastel colors and I didn't have any in my stash. I first started with two shades of vivid pink and charcoal, but that went to the frog pond. Then tried these too-bright colors, and I LOVE them. It is also a very interesting heel too.

Here are the details about these wonderfully designed socks. I used Opal Uni in natural, and Wildfoote Luxury Sock Yarn in Deco Green and Temple Turquoise. I knit them on #0 dpns and the leg was 80 stitches in circumference, as the pattern dictates.
I used #00 dpns for the start of the sock, which would be the facing of the hem at the top, so that they wouldn't flare around the picot edge, and switched to the #0 needles after the picot row.

Hi! I saw your socks on Ravelry and came over to visit your blog.

I love these socks! What yarn did you use?
