Dragon socks complete

Draco Nobilis is the eight pair of socks I've knit from the Rachel  Coopey "When Granny Weatherwax Knits Socks" club. In the Discworld, 8 is a magic number, and these were pretty magical to knit.

Going down a needle size made a huge difference, and the fabric feels really nice, as well as the socks fitting me better than the rest of the socks I've knit from this club.

I love the colour of the yarn, as well as the fact that it is tourist yarn, but, because of the mulitcoloured nature of it I was worried about the pattern getting lost. Looking at the finished socks, I think the pattern breaks up the pooling nicely.

Going with my aim of taking from the bottom of the pile I used a yarn bought in 2011. Well seasons, it can now fly out into the world as Draconis Nobilis - glorious dragon socks.
