These knee socks have been a long time in the making (cast on was in april
) but I have finished making the lakeside
socks for my sister! Even though it was my second time knitting this pattern I still enjoyed making them. Still somehow I can’t manage to finish one of these completely without mistakes. But let’s just call that ‘personalised’ and ‘one of a kind’ (ahem).
As for the yarn, I was pleasantly surprised. I was looking for sock yarn that would not be itchy but could still resist the wear and tear socks usually get exposed to. I ended up buying Rico Design superba cotton stretch.
Of course I don’t know yet how the yarn will last in the long run, but at least it feels super soft and was easy to work with. Plus, it only took me around 55 grams to make one sock, and since I bought 200 grams I still have more than enough left to make another pair of socks.
Now that these are done I can get back to some selfish knitting!
