p/hop pattern in test mode

In case you thought I'd forgotten, I finally finished the instructions and chart for the p/hop socks yesterday! I tried three different heel types and two toe types (yes, just call me the Frog Queen!) before settling on a standard heel flap and my personal favourite, the rounded toe (no grafting - yippee!) I may produce a short row version at some point, but this one was the best match for the pattern repeat and looked nice and neat, so I'll stick with it for now. A big thank you to my three brave volunteers, Debbie (another Debbie, not me), Nora and Fran who now face the challenge of following the prototype pattern. I'll keep you posted with progress.....

ps. For those of you who missed the original post, see Feb posts for my rather dodgy photo of my own foot wearing version 1.0 !

Missed out on the whole p/hop phenomenon? Check out this fab idea, the brainchild of Natalie of the YarnYard to raise vital funds for Medecins sans Frontieres, here.
