Show and Tell 4

These sock are hand knitted as an experiment and were never intended to be worn! One was knitted on a large circular needle usng a technique of pulling loops in the needle to cope with a small number of stitches. The other was made in the traditional way on 4 needles. The pattern is supposed to be a "magic pattern" that only shows in certain directions. You can't see the hearts in the photo but they do show in certain directions. Personally I (and I made them) think they are dreadful - not just the colour which is my fault but the texture would be uncomfortable to wear and the pattern of hearts was sideways which would look very odd especially as it goes the same way on both socks.
