There has been quite some sock knitting going on–with more than one pair on the needles at once. years ago I always had one pair of 4 ply (fingering) and one pair of 8 ply (DK) socks on the needles at once. At this stage I think teh driver has been wanting to make sure one pair is always at a stage where I can knit without looking in meetings, as my life contains many of them at present. These are the Kit Couture Garpen socks. The site is available in English (translation button in the top right of the screen) but so far I think this specific pattern is only available in Danish. I decided I could probably manage without the translation!
Here they are in Tasmania.
And, of course, on public transport!
They have rather lovely details.
I believe that after an awkward start I managed to get the colour changes for the stripes looking quite neat!
Then right at the end I took my eye off the diagram, in which the toe would have been apricot. I am fascinated by these moments in which I sometimes catch myself with a perception of something (here, a sock pattern) that is so convincing I assume it is correct. But the pattern says otherwise when eventually consulted (after this pair were completed). Never mind–I doubt the recipient minds at all and they are ready to keep her toes warm through our winter as autumn is here, at least some of the time!
