Socks in Noro Kureyon silk/wool blend

I just finished these toe-up socks in one of my favorite yarns: self-striping Noro Kureyon (silk/wool). They're for my daughter, Eliza, who is a great fan of colorful footwear! Every once in a while it's good for the hands and heart to make a simple, practical project like this one. I highly recommend this pattern: it's called "Jenny Wren" by Beth LaPensee and it can be found at I knitted it on "square" double-pointed needles, which I love, as they really seem to grip the stitches better. Often, when I'm working on fine double-pointed needles, the stitches tend to slip off, which they don't with these needles.
