Por'tugal / Shur'tugal
Den anden tog så en måned........
De er mægtig lækre og strikket i håndfarvet Odyssey-garn fra Flamboyance yarn. Farven hedder "Gravity well", og garnet er ren luksus. 80% Bluefaced Leicester.
Finally they are done! The socks for me. The first one didn't take too long, as I made it while flying to and from Portugal.
The second sock took a month to knit.......
They are really yummy, made with hand-dyed Odyssey-yarn from Flamboyance yarn. The color is called "Gravity well", and the yarn is pure luxury. Eighty percent Bluefaced Leicester.
The pattern is from the book "Socktopus" by Alice Yu (also known as Socktopus. Funny.). It wasn't difficult, but turned out very pretty, I think. In total, the socks took 90 grams, which is close to a skein. Worth every ounce!
Og så har jeg 12 dage til at strikke 4 strømper. Mon?
Finally a picture of the heel. Hm. Not very interesting, but I really like how the pattern continues down the back of the heel. Very nice detail!
And now I have 12 days to knit 4 socks. As if!
