Nok? / Enough?
Da jeg bagefter var hos min søster for at hente min pakkekalender (der er for fed!) spurgte min mindste nevø, hvad jeg strikkede. Inden jeg nåede at svare, sagde han "Det er nok flere strømper". At det var til hans store kusine var vel ligegyldigt. Det var ikke til ham!
Another pair of socks are on the needles. The last niece to celebrate her birthday this year will be 16 years old in just 7 days, so I really need to speed up! I brought them to watch "Sleeping beauty" ballet at the theater this Sunday, and I did knit a little during the break.
Afterwards, I went to my sister's place to pick up my advent calendar (it's so nice!) and my youngest nephew asked me what I was knitting. Before I had a chance to answer, he said "Well, I guess it's more socks". He didn't care that they were for his big cousin. They weren't for him!
Mønsteret på disse strømper er fra det nye nummer af "The Knitter", og garnet er Zitron Trekking Hand Art. Festligt grønt mix! Jeg er nu næsten ved den første hæl, så jeg har ingen forhåbninger om at blive færdig inden jeg ser modtageren i weekenden. Måske med den første strømpe, og så må nummer 2 blive færdig i løbet af weekenden.
I did make quite a few socks this year, and I guess it might be wise to use less time on socks next year? I definitely have to make something for the kids again, before they just give up on the thought of ever having anything knitted from me again, apart from socks......
The pattern for these socks are from the newest issue of "The Knitter", and the yarn is Zitron Trekking Hand Art. Really nice green stripes! I'm almost at the first heel, and I have no hopes of finishing both socks before I meet my niece this weekend. Maybe the first sock will be finished, and then I will have to finish number 2 over the weekend.
