FO: Sneaky Socks

For the first time I knit a pair of socks for someone whose foot I did not have access to. I had three measurements, the right colours of deliciously springy merino yarn, not a little trepidation, and a plan.

Mock Smock Socks, Knit Picks Memories yarn in Rocky Mountain Dusk

They went in the mail on Monday and the recipient got them on Tuesday. She says they fit perfectly.


They are my first kick at toe-up socks, and not the last. This is also my first short-row heel; I've always done heel flaps before.
