My Squirrel Socks are done :)
Sorry for bad photos today - I used my phone...
But don't them make you happy? I knew I had to make a pair in these colours after I saw Nasti's pair a while ago. And lucky me - I had the right colours in my stash :)
And the other day I saw this pair - Love the colours, so there might be a brighter pair of these squirrels soon!

After I posted about colourwork knitting in my last post, I came in mind that I should have mention that it's important to block.
I always steam block my colourwork knitting, but not the ribbing or the heel!
Below you can see a before and after photo of my squirrel socks. Espesially the toe got a bit wrinkly, but after steam blocking it, it came out flat and neat.
