hundertwasser socks

pattern: my own. just plain socks with a 3×3 cable down the side. co 64 st.

yarn: ca. 70g opal hundertwasser, colourway: 1433, silver sprial

needles: 2.5mm dpns

size: 40/41

i got this yarn for my birthday from my aunt. danke godi :) but i have to admit i’m not the biggest opal hundertwasser fan… i like to knit difficult lace or cable patterns but there is no use to try that with such a colourful and stripy yarn. anyway, it was a nice knit, the socks are comfy and will make great „wear-around-the-house“-socks :)

brainless dragon socks

pattern: brainless socks from yarnissima

yarn: ca. 60g drachenwolle sock yarn, merino/linen

needles: 2.5mm dpns

size: 40/41

i love the look and the fit of these socks! those were my first toe up socks too and definitely not my last!

the pattern works perfectly with the yarn. i’m so happy with these socks! intentionally i wanted to knit these for my mum, but she said she didn’t want anything with too many colours. her loss. my socks now *harr harr*
