Birthday socks #2

I was afraid these would be too loose from the YOs, so I knit through the back loop when knitting the YOs. Then I was concerned they would not be loose enough! 

Pattern:  Bluebell Rib (six-stitch sock pattern) from Sensational Knitted Socks
Yarn:  Schoeller+Stahl Fortissima Socka Degradee Color, colorway 104
Needles:  US1
Modifications:  None, except to knit the YOs through the back loop.

They turned out fine sizewise, but the “bluebells” look like bluebells only to the wearer; to others, they will look like tulips.

In case you were wondering, I am still working on Belinda.  I am almost halfway done!

And I am halfway done with the bottom border of the Danish shawl:

The second half of the border uses ssk's instead of k2tog's, so I should have an easier time of it regarding the splitty yarn.  Thank goodness!
