Knitting and watching TV

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.

Wollmeise, double strand and needle 3.5.

  2. Kjempeflotte strømper du har strikket!
    Ha en fortsatt kreativ uke videre! :)
