My first pair of socks for 2010. (I can't really count the Mulled Wine socks, considering they were begun in 2008!)
And some serious spring sunshine!
Kalajoki socks from a free pattern on Ravelry here. I used Socks That Rock mediumweight in the Lucy colour and size 2.75mm dpns.
There are only 54 stitches round these socks, and a lot of those are plain knitting, so a quick project.
I really like the twisted rib "river".
This is my first outing with Socks That Rock and I can see what all the fuss is about - or was, before Wollmeise became the "hot" sock yarn! It's a lovely firm twist, beautifully dyed. Fabulous to highlight twisted stitches.
I was really happy to see it forming stripes as I knitted - there is only one "pool" on each sock and they are pretty much identical.
I have a LOT of yarn left over. I could have made these at least 4 inches longer.
I love the yarn and the pattern and the finished socks - woo hoo!
