My latest knitted socks just make me smile every time I look at them. My last two knitted socks, were first yellow and then pink, and the wool reminded me of Battenburg cake. Then I realised that I had enough left over for a pair of Battenburg ankle socks.
I knitted these without a pattern. They are toe up (because I was worried about my small supply of wool). The only tricky part was to make sure that the check pattern repeats the whole way around the foot.
