20: Danish "Nattrøjer" socks to knit
I like knitting magazines, but some are more fun than others. This magazine, Piecework, is one of the surprising kinds of magazines. A lot of historical crafts and stories about these special projekts, including patterns that matches the stories. Most of the time, they have something knitted.
Even more often, I'm not going to make anything, but the magazines are still fun.
But when I looked through this magazine and found these socks, I was immediately TOTALLY sure that I was going to make these socks! You know - the pretty star pattern from the old Danish "nattrøjer" that Vivian Høxbro worked so much with, put on these very socks. So much history and care in a single pair of socks! These were the socks I wanted to knit for my oldest niece.
Men de blev da færdige inden jeg tog hjem, og de er bare SÅ fine. Hun blev også rigtig glad for dem.
So these were knit on size 2 mm needles in pretty, yellow yarn (looking very weird on this photo!) with a bit of cashmere. The stars were a bit difficult. For the first sock, I stared at the pattern for every round. For the second sock, I felt like I knew what to do and just knit happily on, but then I made mistakes and had to go back, and then it's not like faster at all.......
But they got done before I went back home, and they are beautiful! She was really happy with them.
Strømperne er strikkede i "Hot Socks Pearl mit Kaschmir" fra Gründl. Købt på tilbud i Haderslev. Strikket på pind 2 og de vejer ialt 85 gram.
Og NU holder jeg så lige strømpepause en uge eller to.....
So here they are in the right yellow color on little K, who suddenly got very long legs!
The socks are made with "Hot Socks Pearl mit Kaschmir" from Gründl. Bought with a discount.
Knit on 2 mm needles and they weigh 85 grams all in all.
And NOW I'll take a break from socks for a week or two......
