Shur'tugals, Done.

DSC03147
I finished the second of my Shur'tugal socks last night. I really loved this pattern and it seemed to work up pretty quickly. I will definitely knit this pattern again. I think this design will work for men as well as it will for women, with just an adjustment in stitch count (it's an 8 stitch repeat, so adjusting it won't be hard). Oh, and just in case anyone is wondering, the red things at the top of the cuffs are not sock, they are my sock blockers, purchased from The Loopy Ewe.

All the details - Shur'tugal sock pattern, Woolen Rabbit Merino/Tencel sock yarn in Mo' Berry (The Woolen Rabbit doesn't use this yarn base anymore, but if you Google Merino Tencel Sock Yarn, you can find other dyers who use it.) I used US 1's DPNs (2.25 mm) for the knitting. As a side note about the yarn, it's not as bouncy a yarn as most sock yarns are because of the Tencel, but what the Tencel takes out in bounce, it adds in shine. The shine was just what I was looking for in dragon rider socks, but it made taking good pictures a challenge.
