Both pink Owlie socks are complete!
That's 4x25g balls of yarn less in the stash - Yay.
Unfortunately the Estonian Kapotad socks were not the correct size for the intended recipient - while I was prepared to alter them to fit, they were quickly snapped up by another family member who had put in an order. Of course they fit perfectly and saved me some unravelling. Love adaptable relatives.
Now I am trying another design from the book 'Knitting Socks from around the World'.
This time the pattern 'Albanian Anklets' adapted to suit the yarn available. This pattern is worked from the toe up and as I now have the relevant dimensions I should be able to get the sizing right this time.
The swirl toe construction is interesting and while it looks a little skewed it sits neatly on the foot. This is knitting up very quickly and the simple two colour design that continues through the heel is easily remembered.
The challenge for me will be the heel construction from this angle.
Wishing you all a wonderfully cool and creative weekend.
