Happy accident socks

Knitting Socks in Lorna's Laces Shepherd Sock, colourway 'Somerset'. The lace pattern is from this scarf; I'm using 8 repeats of the pattern, so the sock is 64 stitches around. I made a mistake on the gusset decreases for this sock; instead of decreasing every other round, I decreased every round. Still, I have skinny ankles, and I think they fit rather well: I'll remember this for next time. I'm planning to make these 'thumb socks' to wear with my toe-post sandals. I'll be making that part up as I go along...

Have you seen this pattern for toe post socks? It's got a couple of options, including a toe-less sock for summer sandals.
I'm another Cambridge based knitter. Maybe I'll see you around somewhere.

Hi crafty otter. I'd heard about the yarn swap tomorrow. I'll probably go. See you there?
