Just in the Nick of Time..
The Zokni socks are finished. I knit these socks with the Socknitters-SAM. These socks were quite a knit. I never learned the pattern and had to refer to the pattern for every row that was knit. I made the socks top down. I did not use the short row heel, instead I brought the leaf pattern down the back of the heel - this you can see if you scroll back a couple of posts. The JitterBug is a little thicker than a fingering yarn. Thick and warm. Very hard to get the true color of this yarn in a picture, but again if you scroll down a couple of post to see the back of the sock you will see the true color. Click of pictures for a larger picture.










Specifics:
YARN: Colinette JitterBug - Velvet Leaf
NEEDLE: Size 1 Bamboo
CHANGES: heel flap and flip-flop toe
TIME: 3 weeks

I love all your flip flop socks! Leaf is such a beautiful color. I had such a hard time deciding between Leaf & Plum when I saw them at a lys. Gorgeous stuff.

Zokni means socks in Hungarian, did a Hungarian person design them. Must go to the Socknitters site I haven't been there for a while. The socks look great! I have some Jitterbug too but haven't knitted anything from them yet.
