This holiday I really wanted to finish my WIP's. So I've been knitting some second-of-a-kinds to get my projects to the FO stage.
These have now been blocked and are going to the same person as the crochet doilies. As I've said before: very nice pattern :) The only problem with these was that my thread was inclined to split...
After finishing my very first (pink) pair, I moved on to a second pair. The pinkies are knitted over 64 stitches which is too wide for me, so I decided to reduce the stitch count to 56, which gives me nice tight socks :) Because I have such slim and small feet (size 36) 1 ball of yarn (100 gr) gives me enough to make a pair of normal, mid-calf socks AND a pair of ankle socks. I can feel I'm starting to get hooked :)
The ankle socks are still mainly based on the basic sock pattern, but I've added a cable along the top of the foot to make them more special. I'm starting to get adventurous :) The second ankle sock is still on the needles but should be finished soon ;)
