Det blev de så næste dag, for jeg manglede kun at strikke tåen!
De blev godkendt allerede på dagen. Min niece spurgte, hvorfor jeg altid KUN strikker pæne strømper til hendes mor? (Hendes mor kunne også godt lide dem.)
The next pair of birthday-socks didn't quite make it on time...... I went to the birthday, having another half sock to do, but since i had to go home and sleep a little, they didn't finish on the exact day.
Next day they were done, though, since I just needed to knit the toe!
They were approved off at the birthday celebration. My niece asked, why I always ONLY make the pretty socks for her mum? (Her mother liked them as well.)
Nå. Men pæne er de. Måske lidt heldige. Ihvertfald wollmeise, i en farve, der skulle have heddet Igor. 105 gram.
The pattern is called "Luck O' the Irish" and was found in the book "Think outside the sox". It is really beautiful. Especially due to the very special heel, that I didn't make. Partly because I didn't know how it would fit, but also because I thought that my sister would like great socks that hug the heel well, rather than a fancy heel. The pattern is supposed to look like a four-leaved clover, I think. I don't get the name, though. "Lucky" is not the first word I think when thinking of Ireland! (Potato-plague and all.......)
Well. They look nice. Maybe a bit lucky? Definitely wollmeise in a color that was supposed to become Igor. 105 grams.
