New socks

This is how far I've come with Clessidra knee sock. The colour is more dark green than in this photo. The yarn is from Marks & Kattens; Strompe & Jumpergarn (shade 1753).
I'm starting to get the hang of the pattern now. First time round it became a total mess and I had to redo it. I had printed out the pattern from my computer in such a way that the hourglass cable didn't fit on the paper and I kept knitting the cable without the two first stitches in every round. I couldn't figure out why I had two stitches left at the end of the round.

This is the beginning of a new pair of socks in Garnstudion Fabel yarn. My dad kindly asked for a second pair of sock like the red ones I gave him. What do you think of the colours, Gunnar? It reminds me of Skogsmulle. A pair to wear for walks in the forest.

I look forward to seeing the Classidra sock when it's a bit longer. It's such a cool pattern - I'd like to start it sometime soon!

Me too. And I'm very curious to see how they fit.

Oj, blir imponerad över att du gett dig i kast med den sockan... Men jag förstår, den är fin. Kanske lyckas göra den nån gång.

Joanna sa...

säg inte så...SÅ svårt är det inte, möjligtvis lite långsamt. 2,5 mm stickor.

Kul att se att det är fler som håller på med Clessidra. Jaa stickar (efter många om och men på vägen båda på en gång)och det går sååå långsamt.

The socks look absolutely spiffing! They will be perfect for not frightening the wolves off, while in the woods ...

Hugs 'n' all,
