FO: Socks :)

You know, it can be a bit hard to admit that I’m probably not going to be able to knit 24 pairs of socks this year. It’s a bummer on the one hand, but on the other hand I’m happy with the organizing and cleaning up I’m doing. Another point is that the BF asked me to stop knitting socks for him. He wasn’t trying to be mean. He just never wears them because he has very warm feet. He’ll only wear them in the winter, and he felt bad about me using all my sockyarn to knit him socks he probably won’t wear much.

So instead, I’ll try to knit 1 pair of socks each month. I finished maelstrom a while ago, but it’s so incredibly comfortable I’ve been wearing it a LOT…

Then there’s Linex3. The pattern doesn’t really match up in my socks but that’s because I did something stoopid. The pattern is perfect and very well written, I just messed up the first sock. Obviously I only found out after I started on the second sock and by then I couldn’t be bothered to frog and re-knit the first one.

I know I’ll knit both of these socks again because the patterns are really awesome 🙂 Both socks have been knit using Dutch Wool Diva yarns (Loki and Heaven of lost souls). They’re so comfy and cushiony (if that’s even a word).

Not much of a finished sock yet, but I’m working on another vanilla sock using Schoppel-Wolle admiral ombré in ‘rotes laub’. I love the color 🙂

How do you like my gray wall? 🙂 I like the way it makes the colors pop on the knitting 🙂

  1. The gray wall is fantastic – it does make the colors pop without interfering with contrast or color balance. As someone who has to scrounge to find a nice plain background for project pictures, I’m pretty jealous!

    Maelstrom and Linex3 are just the type of patterns I like – interestingly textured without going too outlandish. I’ll have to add them to my faves. And your socks look beautiful – pattern mismatches and all!
