Socks 07/04/09 " Drops 100-20"

Well, first I thought, I could make things easy and use a last years pattern....
But no, I'm a honest person and here it is:

Free chosen pattern from Garnstudio, Sokker task für April.
I knitted Drops 100-20 matching this cardi.

Knitting Time: April 2009
Material: 100 g Regia Cotton with dpn 2,0
Pattern: Drops 100-20

Socks 06/03/09 "Owl"

Finished right in time, my "Owl" Socks.
I didn't knit them up to the knee, because the cables come out very thick.
In additon I tranferred the chart to my own approved pattern
and knitted them top-down - et voilà, they fit my foot.

Knitting Time: March 2009
Material: 100 g Flotte Socke 6-ply - the color is light grey, best on the first pic - with dpn 3,0.
Pattern: Owl Knee Socks

Socks 05/02/09 "Kerttu"

Februar task for Sokker KAL.
I'm really late this time, but I was suffering from a bursitis with following surgery.
Now knitting does not go that fast...
But here they are. Right in time.
I changed the pattern a little bit, as I added a smal cuff.
I prefer this version, since it does not slip down.

Knitting Time: Feburary 2009
Material: 100 g Flotte Socke 6-ply, dpn 3,0.
Pattern: Kerttu

Used Yarn 2008 in Total


Socks 01/01/09 "PI"

Brilliant idea, using "PI" and continue knitting the numbers as stripes.
I already saw some different ways to create the socks, two identical ones, or just following the numbers.
Since this pattern is easy, I just gave it a kick by firstly following the numbers which made irregular repeats, and secondly exchanging the colors.
That made two different socks on the first sight but on the second it matches.

Knitting Time: Jan. 2nd - Jan. 6th 2009
Material: 50 g Calzino and 50 g Fortissima, solid, dpn 2,0
Pattern: PI

Socks 34/23/08 "Muscari"

These are the last socks for the 2008 KAL that I completed.
Well, the pattern is easy, but it requires some attention in order to avoid missing a yarn over.

Knitting Time: December 2008 - Jan. 1st 2009
Material: 100 g Flotte Socke, solid, dpn 2,0.
Pattern: Muscari

Socks 34/22/08 " Nutkin"

The pattern was easy to knit and I proceeded fast as long as my shoulder didn't bother me.
I like the colorway, this multi purple, but I'm afraid it can not be seen so good on the pic. Dark colors and cameras - they don't like eachother...

Knitting Time: Dec. 3rd - Dec. 28th 2008
Material: 100 g Calzino Color, dpn 2,0
Pattern: Nutkin

Socks 33/21/08 "Drops 109-48"

..main task for November. These socks were hard to create, not the pattern, but the thick needles. I was glad, when I finally finished them. I only have to sew an elastic inside the cuff in order to hold them in place.

Knitting time: 02.11.08 - 17.11.08

Material: 150 g Schachenmayr Boston with dpn 7.0

Socks 32/20/08 "Mojo" are my November bonus socks. Since I wasn't able to download the pattern, I knitted them after the pic. Hope I got them quiet acceptable, although I changed the pattern and did not continue under the foot, since I consider it uncomfortable underneath the foot.

Knitting time: 01.11.08 - 02.11.08

Material: 100 g Calzino Sportivo with dpn 2.0
