Last week Kate showed me the Valentine sock pattern from Drops. However I do not have any "thick" sock yarn in my stash and the pattern called for needle 3.5. Comparing double strands of Wollmeise sock yarn with Wollmeise Molly I figured out that using normal Wollmeise sock yarn kept double (two strands) would fit the gauge.
And what a fast and fun journey that was. The first pair took approximately a day. 64 stitches casted on,decreased to 56 during the leg.
I did have the color True Love (sock club color) in stash and combined it with natur.
Then the Ravelympics started, and I did want to start with a fast project. So I designed these as I went. The design is a combination of different standard charts to be found in reference books, on old knitwear etc. I'll promise to write down the pattern shortly.
