Varme strømper / Warm socks
Egentlig startede jeg dem i juleferien, men fandt ret hurtigt ud af, at de var alt, alt for stramme til mine ben. Så fik garnet lige lov at skamme sig lidt, inden jeg slog op til den større størrelse, der passer ganske fint.
I finished a pair of nice, soft socks. Made from the softest yarn with possum-wool and a little alpaca. (Oh well. Mostly wool. And a bit of nylon!)
They were first started during my Christmas-vacation, but very soon I discovered how tight they were. Too tight! Then the yarn spent some Time-Out time, before I cast on for the bigger size that fits quite well.
Mønsteret ser ret kompliceret ud, men er i virkeligheden rimeligt enkelt. Det er også gratis og hedder Candlepower socks.
Garnet blev købt på www.yarn.com og var på tilbud. Der gik ialt 85 gram til strømperne.
It is kind of funny that the color is very different on the two socks. It has to be due to different dye lots. (I didn't check that.) But I guess I just have to move my feet very quickly. Then no-one will notice ;-)
The pattern looks complicated, but is really quite simple. It is also for free, and is called Candlepower socks.
The yarn is from www.yarn.com and was on sale. The socks took a total of 85 grams.
