Hun ønskede stjerner, sit navn, striber og specifikke farver. Pink, neon-grøn og sort.
The birthday socks for my niece are done! Only "slightly" delayed for around 2.5 weeks.......
She wanted stars, her name, stripes and specific colors. Pink, neon-green and black.
My very modest (cough!) stash fortunately held wollmeise in these exact colors, so I didn't even have to by new yarn. The socks are made with needles size 2.5 mm, and I used 130 grams in total, which is somewhat more than usual. But the are not only warm but also long!
Man kan lige klemme dem forbi hælen. Eller - JEG kan, og så kan niecen HELT sikkert også!
Når de først kommer på, sidder de faktisk perfekt.
Even though I knitted so loosely that I several times had one needle fall out in my bag, they are still quite tight.
You can just squeeze them past the heel. Or - I can, and then my niece DEFINITELY can as well!
When they are on, the fit is perfect.
Strømperne var faktisk sjove at strikke og det tog ikke alt for lang tid, men det med mønster på hele skaftet er nu ikke noget, jeg ellers vil dyrke, fordi det er så stramt.
So now I hope the tiny toes can stay warm during the cold Michigan winter!
The socks were actually fun to make and didn't take too long, but all the pattern on the leg is not something I really want to do a lot of, since they are so tight.
