these socks are for my dad. he chose this yarn himself when i sent them to buy wollmeise yarn for me at the handwerkermarkt in sindelfingen. so i’m not to be blamed – the man wanted red socks himself! 😛 he sais it’s dalai lama colour and that’s perfect because he wants to wear them when he goes to his weekly sessions to the buddhist temple in stuttgart. that’ll keep his feet warm while his mind is engaged with more spiritual matters 😉
i hope they fit. he didn’t try them on yet.
yarn: wollmeise twin, 80% merino superwash / 20% polyamide, colourway: granatapfel. the wollmeise was a pleasure to knit – as always!
pattern: Mash-Up Magic Toe-Up Socks Recipe as a basis and i added a cable on the outer side of each foot
