Here is a pattern for my Unseen Socks that I mentioned in the first post. This pattern has not been tested, so let me know if you have any problems. I used Nancy Bush's Knitting Vintage Socks for the toe and the heel. I'd really recommend buying it. It's got all sorts of other heels and toes so you can really make these socks your own. Good luck!

Cast on 78 sts. Divide so there are 26 stitches on 3 needles

  1. I might make these or something similar for my Mum for her wedding anniversary (my dad will get red socks with sheeps on). I was looking at my stats earlier, and one of my referring sites is a porn site...:S
