As promised some socks

I finished these socks a couple of weeks ago and realized that I never posted a picutre of them.
I started with a 16 st garter st cuff, that I made long enough to go around my calves, picked up stitches along the edge and knit the socks down. I needed to decrease the stitch number down at the back of the socks.
Yarn: Patons Kroy Socks Krazy Stripes
Needles: 2.75 mm bamboo
Heel: Patridge Heel flap with garter strips on the sides
I like the garter edging to the heel flap but not perfer the slip stich heel as opposed the Eye of Partridge flap.

Hey T,
I really like these ones. I didn't know Patons had sock yarn.

Luvly socks, btw.

Also, I posted over at the TWIT's blog, but thought the news was so earth-shattering that I should comment here as well.

Dumbledore is GAY. I read if for myself in the Globe and Mail where Rowling outed him. This news could go several ways. He could be an amazing role model for gay-rights folks or he could be used by the anti-gay people to show what happens to gay people (they die).

I read it as well at lunch. I am not surprised - I think the thought occurred to me while I was reading Deathly Hallows.

I guess I need to do another blog entry, with some non exciting knitting news.
