|Dalarna - lots of stockinette|
Finished Dalarna socks! The knitting of them wasn't too exciting - blame the large swathes of stockinette - but the resulting socks are the comfiest ever, thanks in large part I'm sure to this oh so soft yarn. It certainly was a treat after my disappointments with that green yarn over the last couple of weeks. The yarn is mostly purple but there are light sky blues shot through - what a great colour combination!
|comfiest ever yarn|
Late last night I cast on my first Hiiumaa Mismatched Mates sock. After all the dishcloth and iCord frustration, I wanted something easy and satisfying. There's just so much to love about this pattern:
- watching self-patterning yarns express themselves
- working stripes in different colours
- stash-busting Kroy sock leftovers
- knocking off another item on my Year of Projects list
- adding to my pile of knits for the Warm Hands Network
love the colour, and sometimes stockingstitch is the way to go!
Lovely socks - I've got a skein of her sport I can't wait to cast on with!
I love the color of those purple socks.
Your purple socks look great, it can be wonderful to do a nice simple project sometimes
I am looking forward to seeing your mismatched socks. I am going to look at the dishcloth pattern. You have me interested in it now.
So happy to see them knit up and that you are happy with the yarn!!
