Love the colours of the wool. I've heard they're not easy to do well but you've done very well indeed clever lady! x

Louise said...

That's amazing! I crave hand-knitted socks but I don't think I have the skills. Is it very complicated?

Séverine said...

So perfect, wow ! :)
I also love the yarn, it looks very warm.

Thank you ladies...
Louise, not easy, you need at least an intermediate level of knitting and lot of patience.

So nice, would love to knit some socks one day. That wool looks beautiful and warm which I imagine you are needing there now! Do you think the 2nd sock will be complete before the end of winter?? Hehehe!

Merja, I used a Rico Superba Poems yarn.

Louise, then I dunno...you can always give it a try, check your local knitting group or the local wool shop and see if there is any good soul nice enough to teach you :)))

Fliss, it's not so cold right now, but since I failed with my previous attempt (the spring socks, because I hadn't followed any pattern) I'm more than eager to finish this one and make many more...hopefully! But I get your point ;)

Oh, great to have a companion. I am, too, knitting socks. I got the knitting needles and yarn for Christmas and would love 2011 to be the year where I learn to knit socks. The first ones might have to be very long ones. I am on my first one and sort of avoiding the heel.

Trollringen said...

Keep going; they're not only beautiful, they look so, so soft and comfortable. I seem to stop at 1 1/2... not a good thing!
