Project #1: Socks for Tea

These were initially an additional Christmas present I never got around to finish in time…. not even start:)

Yarn: Viking Sportsragg (100% Wool Superwash): 50g =100m (110yd)

Needles: 3,5 mm / US 4

I cast on 48 st(s) on dpn´s, and knitted in *k2 + p2* until the leg measured 16 cm. After I finished the heel, I decreased 3 st(s) on each side within the first 10 rounds of the foot. This pair measures 24 cm´s from heel to toe, and the pair weighs 90 g. So you´ll only need 2 skeins for a one-colored pair.

The pink is really neon, -a bit hard to capture when the lights are low….

I´m a dedicated knitter. I share my house with an unknown amount of wool. My kind of wool seems to multiply like quicksilver, -drop a skein to the floor and you get 10 in return….. (well… get is maybe an exaggeration….) So I keep on knitting to try to get on top of it, enjoying the process, the texture of the yarn and the endless possibilities in creating new garments.
