Fight the grey for a picture...

Circumstances can be a funny thing. Despite finishing these weeks ago, I have been waiting for a pair of big feet to make them look their best. Thankfully, my boyfriend has perfect giant man feet to m
odel such a delightful knit. Sadly, Bristol will not be experiencing any natural light or sunshine for months to come so I had to give in and photograph them in our dark bedroom. Aren't they nice though? Here's the details...

Pattern: Cabled Footies from One Skein
Yarn: Rowanspun Aran, leftover from Rogue, less than 100g
Needles: 5mm DPNS plus a selection of cable needles (I kept losing them)
Time taken: They've been lingering a little while but they were a very speedy knit. I could crank a pair out in a couple of evenings if need be.

Modifications? Very few. I made them a bit bigger to accommodate larger feet but that's about it. I wasn't keen on the toes - they look mighty pointy without feet in them - and would probably modify them if I was knitting them again. Which I am sure I will.

These were intended as Christmas presents for my mum. But the model took a shine to them and he will now have very toasty feet on these cold Bristolian nights. And Mum will get a pair with less pointy toes.
