15 år / 15 years
Garnet er Zauberball i en eller anden håndfarvet udgave, og vi syntes begge, at de faktisk har en meget flot effekt. Selv om det bare er ribstrømper.
My niece turned 15 just 2 days before I arrived. When her socks were finished next morning, she put them on immediately. In spite of the summer heat!
The yarn is Zauberball in some hand-dyed edition, and we both like the effect of this skein. Although it's only ribbed socks.
Hun holdt ud med strømper og sko i 4-5 timer, inden tæerne måtte have luft, men til gengæld sov hun så med dem om natten. Som hun plejer med nye fødselsdagsstrømper!
This time, I cast on 72 stitches, making them a bit wider. They are made on 2.5 mm needles and weighs a total of 80 grams.
She staid in the socks with shoes for 4-5 hours, before her feet needed air, but then she slept wearing the socks at night. As is her tradition with new birthday socks!
Det bedste? Jeg har stadig 2 uger tilbage herovre.
I got to see her gift from her parents. A flying lesson! Since it's the US, it didn't cost a fortune, and the girl was overjoyed! She wants to be a pilot, and this didn't do anything to take away her dream, getting this ride....
The best thing? I still got 2 weeks left over here!
